Free Form Rock Podcast

Welcome to the Free Form Rock Podcast, with our hosts, one fellow who has a wider range of musical interests and another fellow who likes to think of himself as a bit more limited and obscure, ha ha. Actually, we are proud of our diversity, as long as it stays within the limits of what is known as rock music, and we invite you to listen to our episodes and become more open-minded about music. Cheers, everybody!
