Connecting the Classics is a weekly competitive radio hour, in which hosts Lee Robinson and Will Hagle connect two classic albums using tangential music references, Kevin Bacon style. Each week, Lee picks an album and Will picks an album. They play songs from their chosen albums and discuss them, then weave webs using other songs and artists, resulting in six songs of separation (Kevin Bacon style). Points are awarded for good connections but the points don’t matter (Whose Line Is It Anyway style).

A Friendly Competitive Radio Hour

Lee and Will know more than I know, but thankfully they share their knowledge and love of music with us each week!
Connecting the Classics is a great way to discover new music, learn the stories behind music you already know and love, or just have a laugh, as the hosts weave webs of tangential connections between two classic albums, Kevin Bacon style.
