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.
