Preston & Steve®

Weekdays 5:30am - 10:30am

The Preston & Steve Show loves a good list.

Today they broke down two: The 25 Greatest Classic Rock Songs & the 20 Best Acoustic Song Intros. Both lists had some blatant omissions and the gang was quick to point those out between random stories about each song and the expected random tangents. If you’ve been craving a seriously fun music conversation, this is it.

Take a listen to the podcast, lists are posted below if you want to peek ahead:
