TSOM08: Butt Rock…A Search of the Rock Radio Ashtray


For this episode, the TSOM panel venture deep into the stinky world of Butt Rock, which gets its name from the radio stations that support it, claiming to play “nothing but(t) rock.” As it would turn out, three quarters of the panel sound fairly well-versed on their Butt Rock, making for compelling 30-ish minutes of, often, painful admissions and uncomfortable soul searching. So, journey with us through the bowels of Butt Rock, in what might be our most painful hemorrhoidal experience yet.
