Rock Class Is Back In Session! It’s About Time For Rock and Roll Report Podcast #66!

Well it’s been a long time coming but the Rock and Roll Report podcast is back! That’s right, hold onto your hats because after a few months hiatus I am back with more rock and roll fun than you can shake a stick at. What I have decided to do is take a belated look back at 2009 in two parts which will remind you all of some of the great music played over the last 12 months and for those of you new to the podcast this will serve as an intro to what the podcast is all about. Next week will be part 2 of the 2009 review (and another 25 songs!) before I settle down and revert to my usual 10 song, 45 minute length.

I apologize for being away and I really appreciate all the comments about the podcast and the genuine good wishes (and occasional snarky remarks!) from those of you wanting to hear the podcast again.

As usual you have a wide range of styles from a wider range of bands and artists who are either unsigned or are signed to independent record labels. If you like what you hear please consider supporting these bands in a tangible way by buying their music, going to their shows and buying their merch.

Rock and Roll Report Podcast #62 – So Glad You Dig Me

cute girl smilingFor those expecting a podcast last week I apologize but as I did Rock and Roll Report Radio on October 12th I just couldn’t get a podcast together in time for release on Wednesday.

On this week’s podcast I turn things on their head a bit and feature what I consider 3 very distinct styles of music in 3 very distinct sets. And I went against my initial impulse to start of the show with the harder stuff to keep things interesting!

I have just finished reading “Rick Rubin: In the Studio” and it is a pretty fascinating book as Rubin’s taste in music know no boundaries. From hip hop to hard rock, metal to Pop, Red Hot Chili Peppers to Johnny Cash, the guy understands that music is about the song and the emotion it conveys. A highly recommended read and a good rule of thumb to go by. Don’t get caught up in genres in niches, focus on the song and let the rest take care of itself which is kind of what I did this week. I love all this songs and at first listen you might find them to be quite different from each other but to me that doesn’t matter. Each song caught my ear and I like each one regardless of whatever genre YOU think they belong in!
