I am retired now and travel in our motor home but still listen to Johnny Dare by way of the internet. I make it a point to get back in the area to go with my grandson to Rockfest every year. I wear out and he is good enough to let me go home before it is over but we have a great time.

I've noticed that The Rock has a show on late at night called "The Pit" which plays some pretty heavy stuff. That's cool because you don't typically hear anything that heavy on the radio, and it helps promote those bands so they get bigger audiences at their concerts. Tonight was the first time I'd heard "Bring The Noise" by Anthrax and Public Enemy in a very long time, which was neat. I hope they play some deeper cuts from Pantera on that show too.

After listening for about three weeks, I've noticed they play a fair amount of Puddle Of Mudd, but that's understandable since they're from Kansas City. (Wes Scantlin needs to lay off the cocaine.) They also like the song "Gasoline" by Seether, but that's fine with me because it was one of their lesser hits, and it's a good song for rocketing down I-35 or I-70. Still, the variety on The Rock is better than on most other Active Rock stations I've heard. They play a lot of different bands, and a lot of different songs from the most popular bands. They also don't get too '80s- or '90s-heavy during the day.

By the way, I'm familiar with 96.5 The Buzz too, and they do a good job for an Alternative station. I remember they were the station that introduced me to the band Bat For Lashes five years ago. I'm still partial to the mainstream hard rock that a lot of people consider either too dull or too angry, but I do have an appreciation for alternative rock and indie rock too.

Anyway, I'm still rocking with The Rock here in Georgia.
