“Hollywood and Rock ‘n’ Roll”

Original Air Date: Saturday, April 28, 2012


From documentaries to live concerts to action/comedies, film producers, writers, and directors have taken different perspectives bringing rock ‘n’ roll to movies on the big screen. From the early days of rock with the effusion of music from Billy Haley and the Coments in “Blackboard Jungle” to the introduction of what would later be known as the rock video through The Beatles in the cleverly played “Hard Day’s Night” to the allstar rock cast of “Tommy” and documentaries like “Woodstock” and live concerts such as “The Last Waltz,” the movies and rock ‘n’ roll have experienced a rather dysfunctional relationship. The Timmons Brothers will reflect on how the film industry has portrayed rock through the years with the hits, misses, and obscurities.

“A Look at 1973: The Year Rock Becomes Classic”

Original airdate: October 28, 2012


1973 is a landmark year in the laurels of rock music history. Although the contemporary top 40 hits of 1973 may be lost in the vaults of time forgotten (does “Tie a Yellow Ribbon Round the Ole Oak Tree” or “Playground in my Mind” come to mind?), few of us knew at the time we were also experiencing some of the greatest rock music and artists for future generations. The album debut releases by such artists as Queen, Lynyrd Skynyrd, and Aerosmith along with impactful album releases by established artists (Led Zeppelin, The Who, Pink Floyd and solo work by each former Beatle, et al) set the stage for 1973 as the genesis of what would later be called “Classic Rock”. Join the Timmons Brothers and their in-depth retrospective of 1973 rock music as the benchmark for an integral core of the popular classic rock format in the radio industry.
