    David Bowie! Bob Dylan! Jimmie Rodgers! One of these things is not like the other...but that's okay, they all worry about the world. Or, in the case of Jimmie Rodgers, at least America. Maybe the Korean War, maybe the Vietnam War, maybe any one of the dozens of other wars that have taken place around the world in the last 75 years. Let's see how far we get when we think about the way the world turns.

    Thought about the Apocalypse lately? Maybe in 1980s terms? Nena says it's very very super-scary...but she also says that everyone's a superhero, everyone's a Captain Kirk! So we should get through this.

Trentonius Maximus, huh? 😉

These guys are cute and consistent. They’ve been around a while now but continue to keep things moving by varying the songs and styles they highlight. I wish them the very best.

Rock Talk with a Positive Note

Steve Atkins is The Limey, and Blake Bennett is The Yank. They talk about rock & roll they love, with lots of humor, and debate whose music is better. It says Parental Advisory, but it's pretty tame. They know a lot about music, and it's fun to remember (or hear new stuff) when they play snippets of songs.
