Rock & Roll Shin-Soo Choo features discussions mixing baseball and rock music. Nearly twenty years ago, hosts Gabe Estill, Jonathan Goetz and Levi Leach all went straight from spending their allowances on baseball cards and Starting Lineups to spending paychecks on records, CDs and concert tickets. From classic rock and metal to indie, alternative and whatever may have been released last week, their diverse musical tastes generate discussions that will touch all four corners of the rock and roll landscape. Each episode also covers current events in Major League Baseball, along with its rich past of heroes, characters and bit players.

98: Field Guide to 198903/06/2019 Duração: 01h20min
The year 1989 was a heckuva way to close out a decade. Upper Deck disrupted the trading card industry, giving us one of the most iconic baseball cards of all time, while an earthquake shook up the World Series between two Bay-area teams - the Oakland A's and San Francisco Giants. In the music industry, veterans like The Cult, XTC and Chris Rea offered superb albums that may be overshadowed by all-time classics from Tom Petty and the Beastie Boys. But newcomers like Nine Inch Nails, Nirvana, and - yes - even Milli Vanilli, made breakthroughs nobody would soon forget.
