Christian Geeks Classic Rockcast - Ep 12 - Degarmo & Key / D&K
Steve and Britt are back at it, this time discussing Degarmo & Key’s 8th studio album, “D&K” (1987). This album was special not only because of the amazing music, but also because of their “Buy One, Get Two” deal to give one away as a ministry to others.

This Podcast is really fun. Finding several similar Podcasts that focus on classic Christian 80’s rock/metal. Looking forward to many more episodes from these guys. Rock for the ROCK!
Great Nostalgia With Cool Guys
This is a fun listen for those nostalgic for the music of their younger days. Two cool guys as hosts and I enjoy their back and forth on some of the favorite albums of my youth.
Favorite episode so far was definite Petras This Means War! I liked how they were able to recognize and appreciate Bob Hartmans underrated songwriting, too.
My tastes don’t go towards the alternative but if yours does they have picks for you as well.
Hit the subscribe button on this one! Looking forward to what comes next. Hopefully more Petra, White Heart, Stryper, Pakaderm Bands, Barren Cross, Tamplin stuff etc!
Great trips down memory lane plus learning about some stuff I’ve never heard of! Keep up the good work. 👍🎸🎸🎸👌
