This week Bill, Allen, and Dennis get classy with our guest, Roger Kalia, the new conductor of the Evansville Philharmonic Orchestra. We talk with him about being one of over 250 candidates trying out for the position. We also talk about his background in music and having socially distanced performances during a pandemic. We also do our regular pre-interview stuff for your listening pleasure. Join us!
Episode 3 is a three-part journey through three festivals that have had either a significant musical or cultural impact - or both during the first 30 plus years of the rock and roll era.
Running in reverse chronological era, we begin with reviewing the Billboard chart the week of Live Aid, a benefit concert organized by Bob Geldof of the Boomtown Rats and held in the cities of London and Philadelphia for the purpose of raising money to assist with famine relief in Africa. To date, it's estimated over 150 million dollars was raised are the concerts, which four broadcast live around the world.
Musically, it wasn't so much Cutting Edge as it was perhaps the most significant reunion / oldies concert in rock history, which we address.
Note to Styx fans - I can't remember if they appeared on the chart we reviewed for that week, but rest assured if they did, Joe will continue to bash the hell out of them.
It’s been a while so it’s time for some Rockpourri. Bill and Dennis seem to have deep pockets as the Album Acquistions segment is longer than usual and Allen barely stayed awake!
The Talismen, Eddie Van Halen, John 5, Hair of the Dog, and new projects are just some of the topics we discussed with the one the only Ryan Spencer Cook. Another fun episode with one of the best guys out there. Enjoy!
While Bill was out of town this week visiting family, Podcast Rock City's Joe Polo joined Allen and Dennis to talk about the late, great Eddie Van Halen.

We were supposed to have a guest this week but life happens. Dennis had a previous commitment so Bill and I took a few minutes to talk about a little music news and a couple pretty cool things Bill scored.
In this episode, we visit the Billboard chart from the week that we graduated from Heritage Hills High School in Lincoln City, IN in 1983, and reflect how we felt then and now about the music that was popular at the time of that capstone event of our high school career.
Spoiler alert!! - Styx fans might experience a little sadness or anger or both at Joe's brutally honest review of their two songs on the charts that week.
Tim Rozner, 2019 Production Manager of the Year, joins us again to discuss how we can help the tours, crews, and many others during these difficult times. We focus on the state of the touring industry, what’s next, and how you can help make a difference. Please help if you can at wemakeevents.org. #WeMakeEvents
“Everybody Moves and Nobody Gets Hurt” is the catchy title of the awesome upcoming “The Great Affairs” album! The fact that Denny and Kenny are both huge KISS fans was icing on the cake for us. After checking out the podcast be sure to grab the album and listen to the new tunes, available on Friday Oct. 2nd!
Welcome to the inaugural episode of The Chart Show. Join Joseph G and Dennis T as they begin this journey of reconsidering moments in music chart history. First stop - AT40 for week ending August 10th, 1974.

Chris Kelley from Tennessee Champagne joins us to promote the band's album.
Dennis couldn't be there this week when Rich joined us to talk about the band's new stage and costume designs and some other things. Dennis was present when we recorded our normal preshow discussion, including a mini-discussion about the late Frankie Banali.
This week Ronja from The Pinpricks, a band located in Germany, joins us. We hope she forgives Allen for mispronouncing her name during the introduction.
Carrying on with our 40th anniversary reviews, this week KISSfaq's Julian Gill joins us to review Judas Priest's British Steel album.
Jeremy Asbrock from Thee Rock and Roll Residency, the Gene Simmons Band, and the Ace Frehley Band joins us this week for a great conversation about his new record. We also do a 40th anniversary review of Queen’s The Game.
Continuing our 40th anniversary reviews, this week we ask our friend Jason Herndon to join us and review Kiss Unmasked since Allen knows it’s one of Jason’s favorites! Lots of great talk about vinyl and for those saying that they like a longer show... well here you go!
Our buddy Peter Cecere from the I Love It Loudcast joins for another 40th Anniversary album review and this week, Ladies and Gentlemen, we bring out one the most iconic records of all time ... BACK IN BLACK. Trust us, not only is this album full of innuendos, so are the hosts. Fun stuff awaits!
This week Ed Spangenberg from Klick Tee Shop joins us as we announce how much the proceeds from our t-shirt sales raised for No Kid Hungry. We also invited Ed to pick an album from 1980 to review. He chose Van Halen’s Women and Children First. Join us as we discuss this album along with our usual shenanigans.
Allen's high school friend Craig Wright joins us this week as we pick our top 5 worst KISS lyrics. Heaven knows we've got plenty to choose from.
Brandon Fields joins us this week to talk about his new project that started out as one song with Jeremy Asbrock but turned into a whole album that also includes Matt Starr and Todd “Dammit” Kerns. The record drops in the fall and is going to be badass!!
So you think you’re a singer? Vocal coach Ken Tamplin joins us to discuss his YouTube Channel (that has over a million views) and the work he has done to help some of our favorite rock stars save their voices. It’s jam packed with some great conversation and education. Wind it up... here we go!
Dennis invites Sonny “Hollywood” Pooni (Growin’ Up Rock Podcast & Podcast Rock City) and Steven Wright (Podder than Hell Podcast) over for PODCAST GAME NIGHT. For the first time ever we crown the Stream King. It’s not what you’re thinking... we are way to old for that!!
A Tennesseean, a Buckeye, and 4 Hoosiers walk into a bar... (Stop me if you’ve heard this one before...)
The Ages of Rock crew are joined by three faithful listeners to join in on the insanity, and insanity certainly ensues. We’ve got Album Acquisitions, news about the KISS Kruise, PLUS-each participant brings their favorite song from each KISS album with newly released recordings. Some total KISS geekdom happens, some surprises, and a lot of fun!
Can 6 KISS fans agree on the best song from a record? Can 2 Bills figure out whose turn it is? Are there any more New England albums remaining out in the wild? Will Allen’s next project involve a symphony? And who the hell is Dennis Cathey, anyway?
Grab your KISS records, crack a beverage of choice (even if it’s blue Kool-Aid,) and join in on the fun!
2020 has had some great new music but the new album Warrior, by Canedy, is fantastic. On this episode we are joined by drummer/producer Carl Canedy and frontman Mike Santarseiro to discuss how the band came together and the new chemistry that emerged.
