Ages Of Rock Podcast

Welcome to the Ages of Rock Podcast! We are three guys who have a one thing in common... a love of Rock and Roll. In particular we have an affinity for a band you may have heard of... KISS. Bill and Dennis had this dream of doing a podcast about our love of Rock and Roll. At a Judas Priest show in 2014 Bill introduced Dennis to Allen and we teased the idea of doing a podcast. Allen has done a podcast before and so the Ages of Rock Podcast is now a reality. Our goal is to talk about all things rock not just KISS... We hope you find us intriguing, funny, and occasionally highly opinionated.

Welcome to Episode 003 - Part 3 (The Monterey Pop Festival Episode) of our three part journey through the charts of music that was popular the weeks that parallel the three festivals we think had a significant impact on either the musical or cultural impact - or both - during the first 30 years of the rock and roll era.

In this episode, we review the music that was popular on the Billboard charts the week of the most important Music Festival during the rock and roll era. No concert prior to or since that event represented the pulse of music at the moment and what was to come . . . something that was only hinted at that week on the Billboard charts.

The concert introduced a larger audience to Jimi Hendrix, Otis Redding, and Janis Joplin. It officially kicked off The Summer of Love just up the coast in San Francisco. And it let the world know that blues rock was the most legitimate form of the true origin of rock and roll - the Blues - by giving the Who a larger billing, introducing the world to Canned Heat and several other fantastic Blues based rock bands of the era.

Come with us back to the middle of June, 1967, and be thankful your ears work when you hear the music of this era.

Nov 5, 2020

Donnie Vie, a self proclaimed guitar hack, talks about his career and love of making music. He has a new single in the works that’s soon to be released. It was quite a ride!

Nov 2, 2020

Welcome to Episode 003 - Part 2 of our three part journey through the charts of music that was popular the weeks that parallel the three festivals we think had a significant impact on either the musical or cultural impact - or both - during the first 30 years of the rock and roll era.

In this episode, we metaphorically close out the 1960s with the Woodstock concert. No concert event ever defined a generation like the Three Days of Peace and Music... But what were people listening to that week of the concert? And did the performers at the concert fundamentally changed the path of rock and roll? Listen and enjoy, as we share our viewpoints on these questions.

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.

Oct 22, 2020

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!

Oct 15, 2020

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!

Oct 7, 2020

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.

Sep 25, 2020

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.

Sep 24, 2020

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
