Jesse W Jackson ,

Walking on a Crooked Crutch

To misquote Springsteen in his song "Growing Up" I found the key to rock history universe in the engine of a old parked podcast. Sonny and Steven are the cosmic kids and when people say sit down, they stand up!

Marc Alden Taylor ,

Great Chemistry

Great co-hosts one has better taste in music one is ok but together they are on fire.. If you like fun and shenanigans this is the podcast for you

@harigtweets ,

Fan for years w/ no plans to stop!!

I happened upon this podcast just about 4 years ago on a recommendation from another I listen to. I really appreciate the passion Steven & Sonny have for the music of my lifetime but also give some love to the bands still creating new music, many of which I’d never have heard or even given a chance had it not been featured on Growin’ Up Rock! I look forward to what they have to offer in the future!
