Series produced by KSLU

Series image

Rock School is an insightful and energetic showcase of the music, history and culture of rock-n-roll.

Featuring a variety of bands, singers and musicians from the 60's, 70's, and 80's, Rock School travels back to a time when the music was pure and teaches some not-so-pure things about the rock you grew up with.

Hosted by Dr. Joe Burns and Chad P, Rock School is recorded and produced at Southeastern Louisiana University in Hammond, LA in the studios of KSLU public radio.
