Because rock is such a male-dominated genre, it’s sometimes easy to forget how many great female rockers there are. I’ve used the term before, and this playlist warrants its use again (and again and again): the women who make it in rock tend to be complete, awe-inspiring powerhouses. As you’re probably coming to expect from me, I’ve […]
As a self-proclaimed “Classic Rock Show,” sometimes I get the not-to-be ignored urge to go back to theroots of rock ‘n’ roll. I once had a professor that asserted that all (pre-60’s) roads in music lead to the Beatles, and all roads since the Beatles stem from them. Though that could be taken as an oversimplification, I […]

Billy Joel’s Piano Man debued on this day in 1974!
In honor of the 30th Anniversary of the Breakfast Club (released March 31, 1985) this is a playlist of great rock songs from the great soundtracks of great movies – all in my great (and obviously not-so-humble *wink*) opinion. Cheers!
