It doesn't matter what we use to make our music. It doesn't matter which music we love, or even if there's music we don't like as much, or at all. We dig what we dig, and our brothers and sisters do their version of the same. There's room for all of it on the radio, somewhere. At least there should be.
On This Is Rock 'n' Roll Radio with Dana & Carl, we do our part in the space we have. It's a mighty noise, and we dig it. We hope you'll dig it, too. This is what rock 'n' roll radio sounded like on a Sunday night in Syracuse this week.
This Is Rock 'n' Roll Radio with Dana & Carl airs Sunday nights from 9 to Midnight Eastern, on the air in Syracuse at SPARK! WSPJ 103.3 and 93.7 FM, and on the web at http://sparksyracuse.org/ You can read all about this show's long and weird history here: Boppin' The Whole Friggin' Planet (The History Of THIS IS ROCK 'N' ROLL RADIO).
