iVoryTowerz Radio: Guilty Pleasures

If you truly enjoy rock 'n roll, you understand the concept of guilty pleasures. At a certain age, all rock becomes a guilty pleasure. And of course, we embrace that concept wholeheartedly here. So why not a musical examination of the topic. Can an underground podcast go a little Top 40? Sure, just enough to be a pleasure and still underground. How about some classic buried rock treasures? Those certainly fit too. An excursion into symphonic metal? Fits the bill. By now, perhaps you get the concept. If not, listen along and perhaps we'll find your groove. The patented eclectic mix is here with more than 50 years of rock represented. We have everything from alt-country and indie rock to garage rock, new wave, and psychedelia too. Enjoy!
