The Classic Rock Podcast

Hosted by Tim Caple, every month the Classic Rock Podcast show is a magazine show with a mix of exclusive and archive interviews with some of the legends of the genre blended with the greatest Classic Rock from the last 60 years as well as the best of the months new music. There are also features with authors of rock related books and and media.
