R&SRNR_ 177 – “THE LAST SHOW”*
Welcome to the final edition of our little podcast series. Yes, it’s true. After nearly eight years of episodes downloaded by a loyal worldwide audience numbering hundreds of thousands – plus critical acclaim as one of the highest quality oldies and music history programs in cyberspace, we think now is the right time to take our creativity in new directions. More about that during this prrogram.
Our bittersweet so-long will be light on our personal nostalgia and heavy on the types of tunes and tales about the music that you’ve come to expect from us. For instance, the only Elvis Presley hit single on which he didn’t sing a single note. And a song that embarrassed its performers, but topped the charts and then was adopted a few years later by a major league baseball team as its cheerleading anthem.
They’re all part of the “goodbye” songs we’ve gathered for this occasion – along with more of the greatest rock and roll stories on record. Hear it all here.
*Note: All of our nearly 180 shows will remain online and available for downloads through November 2023.
