We pay tribute to the greatest cowbell player of all time, Gene Frenkel. Then we play our Top 20 songs featuring this sonically versitile instrument. Highlights include hearing a very playful Michael Jackson in studio and an interview with the ACTUAL cowbell player on Don't Fear the Reaper.
Your intrepid host gives you the nominees and the ultimate winners for the BEST SONGS FOR EACH DAY OF WEEK AND MONTHS OF THE YEAR! Paul plays around with his echo effect to simulate a real awards show atmosphere. (He fails miserably) He also takes song suggestions from a few of his thousands of listeners! Join us for a light-hearted, fun listen!
Rock historian Mike Blagg (Rock&Blues, Beatles, Beatles Under Cover) joins GDR for the fourth time. This time Mike talks about his second favorite band at arguably their finest hour. Hear this juggernaut album like you've never heard it before. Find out what favorite pet Roger channeled for inspiration to sing "Behind Blue Eyes". Hear Alice Cooper tell hilarious stories about Moon the Loon and find out how stagefright and a urine shortage nearly derailed this quintessential album cover. And much, much more!
As a precursor to next weeks 2 hour Eagles Extravaganza culminating in awarding one lucky listener Eagles/Chris Stapleton tickets and hotel accomodations in Arlington TX for the June 23rd show, we play our Top 20 Non-Eagles songs by Eagles Members. Apologies to Bernie Leadon. Yes, GDR knows you were with the Flying Burrito Brothers and others, but poor Bernie just couldn't crack the Top 20. AND MY NUMBER ONE SONG WILL SURPRISE YOU! But you'll LOVE IT!
An uproarius episode featuring 4 MILLENNIALS! (Sarah, Justin, Luke & Melissa) telling all they know (and don't know) about the songs from the greatest decade of rock. Each gets to introduce the favorite 80's tunes and tries to explain how they discovered them. Over 30 Classic 80's Chart Toppers! And yes, there WILL be a test!
AND HEY..."WE'RE ON A BOAT!" Always up for a gimmick, we take the ol' Tige Boat out and broadcast from beautiful Lake Brownwood. It's where many of my fondest summer memories took place, so it's the perfect spot for me to share with you my Top 20 Songs of Summer.
On this GDR we deconstruct this classic album track by awesome track. How in the world did they ever get this album made?! Hear seldom heard interviews with Lindsey, Stevie and Mick. Plus we hear from the studio engineer Ken Calliet.
A Fun, Fast-Paced look at our favorite small parts of songs. You know...those parts that, when they come on, you'd even shut your mama up and crank the volume to 11! You'll hear songs from Journey, Rainbow, The Beatles, Clapton and many others. Enjoy my friends!
