Rock & Roll Shin-Soo Choo (Audio)

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.
