Meltdown on WRIF

Weekdays 3-7p.m.

Talkin’ Rock with Gary Ho-Ho-Hoey and Michael McDonald Download

43:30 Download November 26th

Lots to get to today on Talkin’ Rock. Another two for the price of one….and this is a free podcast!

Gary Hoey is up first. He tells me about new Christmas music coming, but we might have to wait. His music is become a tradition for so many people this time of year. We talk about his latest blues album and what he might be doing next year. Also, we had to talk about the album he’s been working on with Lita Ford for the past few years. He tells me about her plans as far as releasing it goes, and what the album entails. We talk about his 2020 plans and his thoughts on a guitarist that was recently on the podcast.

Around the 17:40 mark it’s yacht rock legend, Michael McDonald. He was so much fun to talk to! We talk about his love of Motown, recent gigs he played in Nashville, one by surprise. He tells me his thoughts on the Rock N’ Roll Hall of Fame nomination. Remember the TV commercials, SNL skits and scene in the 40 Year Old Virgin? Yeah, we talk about that too! What’s his favorite duet? He answers that as well. 

Al Beck swings by for Rock News with special guest, That Metal Show’s, Don Jamieson. Don recently made some big news revolving around comments Mick Mars made on the show about the last Motley Crue tour. We discuss a band that’s reuniting, but not playing as many dates as was reported on the interweb. David Lee Roth takes credit for a lot of stuff on the first VH album, and a documentary that Dave Grohl is pushing. 

Feel free to leave a 5 star rating, write a review or leave a voice-mail at 248-586-2988.

Thank You for listening!
