This is a music and talk show from two old friends in their 60’s who love to discover, listen, and talk about music.  Each show will have a unique theme by which the guys will bring you great songs from the last six decades as well background discussion about the artists, songs, music labels, and more.  Sometimes the artists and songs will be well known, but the show will strive to present artists and songs that are not so well known and in many different genre’s.  We seek to always entertain you and hopefully inform you of facts behind the music that are new to you.
