I'm guest-hosting WRIR's Cause and Effect Show today. It is one of my favorites to host and to listen to. Each week's host selects an artist than digs deep into the bands and artists that influenced the featured performer and in turns the bands and artists they influenced. Stream the show every Saturday from 1 PM to 3 PM @
Hey Listeners,

It is my pleasure to be hosting Cause and Effect today. Since the Academy Awards are tomorrow night, I thought I’d focus on rock ‘n’ roll and the soundtrack.
