Thousands of Classic Rock fans took to their porches, patios and balconies every FRIDAY night to sing along with some of the greatest and most inspirational songs of all time.

    The second: The “Behind The Song” podcast series, hosted by JANDA LANE. Now entering its fifth year in production, “Behind The Song” dives deep into the lyrics of some of Classic Rock’s most legendary titles with details and perspective on the singers, songwriters and inspirations that provided the foundation for each song.
