    Dean & Rog is still on the air, just listened to them this morning for my drive in. They still do some of the "extras" that you mention. Others, not sure if they are still around.

    No they are gone. Hudson & Harrigan were on KILT and the station just decided to eliminate the duo, which had been around since the '70s. There were several different people that played the roles. Same story on KLOL for Stevens & Pruett. Both of them have since passed away. Ironically they were one of the first ones to play Hudson and Harrigan over on KILT-AM when it was a rock station.

    I would like to hear more background about the music and groups. What about interviews and stories about how the songs came to be. What inspired the artists, and what are they doing today.

    A show called, "The Lost 45's" with Barry Scott does that probably the best of anyone. He has a website, facebook, twitter, the works...and from there
    you can probably find an affiliate. 3 hours once a week, and if you're lucky, the "daily" version as well.

    Is Barry still out of Boston? If I'm right, he used to be.

    His show is doing great in syndication from Boston, but the flagship station on which he did it cancelled it, strangely enough.
    We get plenty of Boston listeners on our stream Saturday nights. Good guy, good show.

    That's what I thought. I lost track of Barry when WODS flipped to CHR and his show obviously didn't fit the new format. Did he go to WROR after?

    Lost 45s is a great show. I follow the logic presented by Corey Taylor (of Slipknot and Stone Sour fame). Most people who are big into heavy metal listen to numerous eras and genres of music. For people who enjoy the golden era of music, Scott plays stuff that is difficult to hear in other places.
