The program, hosted by WCBS-FM on-air veteran and Rock and Roll Hall of Famer Scott Shannon, is dedicated to honoring the greatest rock and roll music of all time, highlighting tracks from the 60s, 70s and 80s.

"We're excited to introduce this homage to the rock music industry to a new audience on our HD3 channel, and continue celebrating the format's rich history with Scott."

"There are so many people who grew up with the original CBS-FM and they miss the music from their childhood," added Shannon. "I think it is important for rock and roll to be kept alive. I have always been a fan and student of the history of rock and roll, and I'm very excited to at this opportunity to share the greatest hits of the 60s and 70s with our listeners."
