The Byrds- Roger McGuinn, Chris Hillman, the late David Crosby

David Crosby of The Byrds has died at 81. The members of the original Byrds - singer/songwriter/electric 12-string guitar player Roger (Jim) McGuinn, singer/songwriter David Crosby, the talented but tortured late singer/songwriter Gene Clark, bass player Chris Hillman, & the late drummer Michael Clarke - were always unabashed in their acknowledgment of their influences, equal parts American folk singers, Bob Dylan, and the Beatles. Yet instead of being hopelessly derivative, somehow they ended up being one of the greatest imprints on both the form and substance of rock and country music to this day.  McGuinn, Crosby, and Hillman join me in this ultra-rare classic rock interview covering the first four Byrds albums Mr Tambourine Man,  Turn Turn Turn, Fifth Dimension , and Younger Than Yesterday in February 1967. - Redbeard

Steppenwolf- John Kay

Mainstream rock fans would vote Steppenwolf into the Rock Hall easily if only for pretty much single-handedly putting hard rock and its term "heavy metal thunder" onto American Top 40 radio with "Born to Be Wild". Lead singer John Kay is my guest In the Studio.
