Hall Of Fame Fuzz Part 2

rock & roll hall of fame

Join me in the Fuzz Factory this week for part 2 of the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame show, featuring only music from members of the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame.

Thursday nights from 8-11 PM (EST) on SCAD-Atlanta Radio (www.scadatlantaradio.org). This will be the final three hour show of the summer.

Rock & roll will never die.


Hall Of Fame Fuzz


It’ll temporarily sound a little more like a classic rock station around here. Tonight and next Thursday the Fuzz Factory will be featuring artists in the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. Why now? Because I am headed to Cleveland next month to see the Hall for myself. I’ll be meeting my parents there too. Should be a fun time.

We’ll also ponder the question of why there even is a hall of fame for rock & roll? It’s a good question that is worth asking, simply because there is a lot of subjectivity involved in determining who is inducted and who is not included in place like this. That’s the case around the fringes of any institution like this one. Especially one dedicated to the influence of personal expression.

Here are some memorable Rock & Roll Hall of Fame moments…

The Led Zeppelin List


This article ranking all of Led Zeppelin’s songs from worst to best has gotten a lot of attention Perhaps you’ve seen it. It’s not a bad article (http://www.vulture.com/2015/07/all-74-led-zeppelin-songs-ranked.html?_ga=1.193424622.2106476627.1437092159).

I love Led Zeppelin, but even more important, I love lists! Therefore I had to take the time to compile my own ranking of their songs. Keeping with the criteria of the article I excluded Coda, and all subsequent releases (including the limited amount of unreleased tracks that have popped up since their breakup in 1980.

First and foremost, Led Zeppelin were an album band. They didn’t edit their songs, they didn’t release singles for pop radio. Therefore a quick ranking of their albums (minus Coda) would be an appropriate beginning.

8/13/15: Headspace Show


This past week the Fuzz Factory stretched out a bit with a new special feature, the Headspace Show. All songs played were long (at least 6 minutes long). They invited the listener to be swallowed by the sound and allowed to drift away within their own headspace. It was a fun journey to the center of the mind and a special feature I will definitely revisit further on down the road.

Join me in the Fuzz Factory this week for the first of two Rock & Roll Hall of Fame shows, featuring only music from members of the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. Thursday nights from 8-11 PM (EST) on SCAD-Atlanta Radio (www.scadatlantaradio.org). These will be the final three hour shows of the summer.
