The History of Rock 'N' Roll

"The History of Rock 'N' Roll With Wink Martindale" has picked up a "Communicator Award" from the Academy of Interactive and Visual Arts and named "The World's Best Regularly Scheduled Music Program" in the New York Festivals International Broadcasting Competition. This is the second year in a row that the program won these two awards. The History Of Rock 'n' Roll is an internationally syndicated, weekly, two-hour, oldies music radio program. This year's awards recognitions coincide with the show's 100th episode, which aired last week.

Each themed episode spotlights a different aspect of rock and pop history, complete with brief stories behind each song. Some of what is heard is funny, some outrageous, and some deeply moving. But once listeners learn the facts behind their favorite songs, they never hear them again in exactly the same way -- because now they know the inside stories.

Some of these insights come from host Wink Martindale; others from the original hitmakers themselves. Typical episodes have included "The #1 Hits of 1982," "The British Invasion," "Folk-Rock Favorites," "The Magic of Motown," "Leading Ladies of the '80s," "Dance Hits of the '60s," "The Super Summer Song Collection," "Superstars In Concert," "Legendary DJs" and "Superstars In Concert." Other episodes spotlight key hitmakers, such as Elvis, The Beatles, Elton John, and more

The History Of Rock 'N' Roll with Wink Martindale is produced by Reserve Productions and syndicated throughout North America by G Networks.
