The Church of Classic Rock
Join your host, The Reverend, Jeff Smith, from 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 noon Eastern, for a weekly musical sermon on the glory that is classic rock and roll! Each week is an exploration of another part of classic rock that makes life worth living!
The Church of Classic Rock started life as the "Sunday Morning Solarium" in March of 2012, but after a brief hiatus in the late Summer, returned to the airwaves as "The Classic Rock Solarium." Upon being ordained by the Church of Universal Life, the newly moniker'd Reverend decided that, since he was already on Sunday mornings anyway, what better way to say "Thanks!" to all of the artists that have given us such amazing melodies, harmonies, and stories, than to dedicate those two hours to a celebration of the music that has inspired so many! No religion but what you bring with you, just a heartfelt appreciation for the music itself (and the playful hedonism that accompanies it) and what it's meant to millions of people since the mid-60's!

The School of Rock is a classic-rock-oriented music radio program started in the Summer of 2005 by The Professor & the Madman, who had been an on-air talk-show team back in the early 90s on WVAC, 107.9 FM in Adrian, Michigan, and re-teamed to venture into the music they loved so well. In the Summer of 2007, they were joined by Doctor Trey (Paaaaaapa Trey), and the team was formed. In 2009 they were joined by The Budman, and in 2010 they added Special Chad to the crew. Doc Blackburn joined in 2013. In 2015, frequent guest-host Aurora Monroe joined as a full-time host.
The current line-up for the Fall, Winter, & Spring version of the show is The Reverend, The Budman, Doc Blackburn, and Aurora Monroe. The mission of the School of Rock is to make sure that the true classics are never forgotten, and that all good music from the 50s through the early 90s gets aired, especially seldom-played deep tracks, B-sides, and album cuts!
As the flagship show, the School of Rock has a dedicate sub-section that you can find at http://www.sorradio.org/tsor/ containing host biographies, archives, and more!
There's just something romantic about traveling by train, something that makes food taste better, wine a bit more potent, and music sound like heaven.
Every Thursday night, from 8:00 to 10:00 p.m. Eastern, join your engineer, Flipper, for a cross-country journey on the Rock N Roll Express! Two hours of great classic rock, car-by-car, as the locomotive of Rock hurdles down the tracks toward a new destination each week!
Jeff "Flipper" Kimble has a library that rivals the station's, and knows all of his music like only a true audiophile can! So join Flipper every Thursday night from 8:00 to 10:00 p.m. Eastern for an journey you'll enjoy so much you'll want to make it every week! It's The Rock N Roll Express , only on SoR Radio: Your Right to ROCK!
Every Saturday afternoon from 12:00 noon to 2:00 p.m. Eastern, hear the best classic rock songs that never made the top-40 on The Back-40 with Special Chad! From the 50s through the 90s, hear the deep tracks, B-sides, and album cuts that were good enough to make the top-40... but for some reason never did. Saturdays from 12:00 noon to 2:00 p.m. Eastern, it's the Back-40 with Special Chad, only on SoR Radio , where it's *always* Your Right to ROCK!
