Really fun delve into the heady days of classic rock and FM radio

I grew up in the 70’s and have had at one time or another, all the classic rock albums that any self-respecting college FM radio station would have been playing at the time. Today my kids give me grief when I put on Exile on Main Street or Physical Graffiti. Bob is very easy to listen to, has some great interviews, all about the music I grew up with, and, when know one is looking, still listen too. Highly recommend this one.
