What is The Rock and Roll Report All About?
The Rock and Roll Report embraces the attitude of rock and roll with both barrels blazing. We specialize in bringing to you what we consider to be the best rock and roll on the planet. While we do spend some of our time listening to what the major labels put out, we like to concentrate on all that amazing music by unsigned bands and musicians and on smaller independent record labels as that is where we feel the passion burns the brightest.
Whether through our various features such as our regular “Band of the Week” with free MP3 download to our extensive CD reviews to our weekly podcast, monthly radio show and Rock and Roll Report TV, we are all about shining the light on those artists that we feel are getting the short end of the rock and roll stick. All the contributors to The Rock and Roll Report are passionate about their rock and roll and are involved because they want YOU to listen and enjoy.
In addition to all this amazing music we celebrate everything that rock and roll embraces with rock movie film reviews, peeks into the dark crooks and crannies of rock and roll history, amazing music photography, thought provoking rants and features and anything else that catches our rock and roll fancy, all served up with a mixture of attitude, sexiness and a healthy sense of fun.
We truly believe that the best way to discover amazing music is to have people passionate about what they like let you know what floats their boat and the Rock and Roll Report always ensures that it is the music first and foremost that is important. And as we are a niche free zone, our rock and roll encompasses everything from hard rock to heavy metal, power pop to punk, garage to psychedelic and everything in between. We don’t believe in overclasifying our music. We will leave that to others to argue about.
If you love rock and roll but have given up hope, come and join us at the Rock and Roll Report. Available on your computer, smart phone or MP3 player or pretty much anything that can connect to the Net, The Rock and Roll Report’s mission is to get you pushing that volume knob to 11. With multiple easy ways to stay in touch with what is going on, we hope that the Rock and Roll Report will become a trusted source of amazing music that will brighten your lights, get your woofers woofing and make your ears and eyes smile.
The Rock and Roll Report. It’s Rock and Roll 2.0.
What we Use to Create the Site
For the geeks out there or the just plain curious, The Rock and Roll Report is run on WordPress using the Revolution theme that has been customized by web design guru Josh Bowers . It is hosted at Media Temple while the podcast files are hosted with Libsyn and our domain names are registered with Go Daddy . Here at The Rock and Roll Report we are big open source fans so we try to use as much of the stuff as we can! We are big fans of Firefox , Open Office , the GIMP and WordPress (obviously). The podcast is recorded and edited using the Audacity sound editor through a Kel Audio HM-2D microphone into a Tapco Mix 100 mixer and an Edirol UA-1EX audio interface.
