From the Spin City Archives: RRHOF Show

Since I didn't do a show this week, I decided to dig into the archives and pull out a playlist from my pre-blogging days. Because the 23rd annual Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony takes place on Monday March 10, I selected a March 2005 show that focused on past and upcoming inductees (since that year's ceremony was about to take place). I spotlighted inductees over two weeks and on the show below, I focused on artists whose popularity was mainly in the 50s and the 60s.

All I can say is "great minds think alike". You will see what I mean by that later this week.

It sounds like somebody has a fun-filled T13 up their sleeve.
