Geezer Rock: New music by geezers who rock. For our purposes, that’s anyone age 50+ (AARP eligible). On Geezer Rock, it’s the musicians who are the oldies, not the songs! Yep, we play all-new songs by all of your favorite “touch of gray” rock stars from the ’60s, ’70s, and ’80s who are still hitting the stages and putting out new albums of new rockin’ tunes.
We’re talking about Joan Jett, Foghat, Randy Bachman, Neil Young, Robin Trower, Patti Smith, Aerosmith, Black Sabbath, Pat Benatar, Robert Plant, Jeff Beck, the Bangles, the New Riders, and many, many more who have not given up their guitars! Hey, you know they’ve gotta be good; they’ve had 30 or so years to practice.
When he was a teen, host Jeff Lindholm let his dad talk him out of a radio DJ career. But Jeff persevered, and he’s been a college and community radio programmer, music librarian, and assistant station manager since 1977 at a half-dozen stations in Pennsylvania, New York, Virginia, and Vermont. Jeff also formed a punk rock band with Rob Buck (later of 10,000 Maniacs), worked in a record store, was music editor of an underground newspaper, led wilderness trips for troubled teens, and he and some friends once were serenaded in the back of a limo by Tiny Tim. So, he’s highly qualified to host Geezer Rock!
