iVoryTowerz Radio: Reconsidering the Hall of Fame

Possibly the most provocative and controversial underground podcast ever dealt with last year's class of inductees for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. As we know, in the modern media culture, every successful program deserves a sequel. So we offer this year's program with a new twist. Instead of one long rant about who shouldn't be in the hall, this year, there's balance: half of the program celebrates the good choices the hall has made (including a stellar class of inductees this year) and half offers up nominees for future selection. So this week, due to the historic nature of the hall, we lean a bit heavier than usual on the older material. Still the program covers 45 years of music and ranges from heavy metal to doo-wop. You'll also find glam rock, new wave, power pop, and rockabilly, sprinkled with a little classic rock for good measure. If everyone on this playlist is worthy of the hall, you know they'll get you rockin'. Enjoy!
