This Is Rock 'n' Roll Radio # 1234

Here we have the playlist for another invigmoratin' edition of The Best Three Hours Of Radio On The Whole Friggin' Planet. I'm a big fan of us. But I direct your attention to the end of the track listing.

I was nearly done with prerecording my parts for this week's show when I realized that it was This Is Rock 'n' Roll Radio's one-thousand two-hundred thirty-fourth show.


Take it, Dee Dee. Or take it, CJ. Either one works okay by me. The Ramones brought us here. The Ramones will bring us home, as your hosts Dana and Carl (with Dave Murray) sign off for another week.

Hey-ho. Ya know?

This is what rock 'n' roll radio sounded like on another Sunday night in Syracuse this week.

This Is Rock 'n' Roll Radio with Dana & Carl airs Sunday nights from 9 to Midnight Eastern, on the air in Syracuse at SPARK! WSPJ 103.3 and 93.7 FM, streaming at SPARK stream, and on the Radio Garden app as WESTCOTT RADIO. Recent shows are archived at Westcott Radio
