This Is Rock ‘n’ Roll Radio # 925

Here on This Is Rock ‘n’ Roll Radio with Dana & Carl, there are some weeks where we have a lot planned in advance, and those weeks work out very well for us and for our listeners. There are other weeks where we may have a little bit planned, but are otherwise, y’know, wingin’ it; fortunately, those weeks also work out very well for us and our listeners. This week? We have nothing–nothing–planned. And it’ll work out. It always does. The best three hours of radio on the whole friggin’ planet? Yeah. That’s what we do. This is what rock ‘n’ roll radio sounded like on a Sunday night in Syracuse this week.

This Is Rock ‘n’ Roll Radio with Dana & Carl, Sunday nights from 9 to Midnight Eastern, on the air in Syracuse on The Spark WSPJ-LP 103.3 and 93.7, and on the web at

Spark Syracuse is supported by listeners like you. Tax-deductible donations are welcome at
