Off The Beaten Path - X-Mas Show

Welcome back my friends, to the show that never ends...well, technically, it ends after about 2 hours, but you know what I mean.  This is my X-Mas's a straight edge Christmas...I'm a little sleep deprived.  Let's get all the formalities out of the way.  This will be premiering Monday 12/19/11 @ 12PM, replays on Wednesday 12/21/11 @ 4PM and Friday 12/23/11 @ 8PM (perfect for a Holiday party).  See how to listen on

The first show of the New Year won't be until Monday 1/9/ everyone involved a couple weeks off during the holidays.  The first show of the year will be the Bands/Performers That Should Be In The RNRHOF, But Are Not Show.  Only artists that have released their first album at least 25 years ago, are eligible.  Using the Rock Hall's qualifications.

Off The Beaten Path - Show #14

We are back for another installment of Off The Beaten Path on  There will be one more show before 2011 goes away.  The Christmas show will be airing in the middle of the month on 12/19/11.  Let's not get ahead of ourselves, because I believe show #14 is as good as any other show I've put together.  I hope you all enjoy listening to it.  The premiere date is Monday, 12/5/11 @ 12PM EST...with replays on Wednesday, 12/7/11 @ 4PM and Friday, 12/9/11 @ 8PM.

Lastly, I'll be doing another themed show after the New Year, about bands/performers that should be in the Rock N Roll Hall of Fame (that aren't).  Not sure when, but it'll probably be late January or early February.  Nominate bands for that show...that's always a great debate.  They have to be eligible for nomination.  Basically, it has to be 25 years since they released their first album.
