The 50th anniversary of Led Zeppelin's 'IV' album is being celebrated by the syndicated radio show In The Studio With Redbeard: The Stories Behind History's Greatest Rock Bands.

The show's host Redbeard had this to say, "It is the golden anniversary of one rock history's most popular, as well as most important, releases from Led Zeppelin. Officially untitled ( Jimmy Page explains why here ), what became known as Led Zeppelin IV forged the molten metal template for all hard rock that followed in the Seventies. Yet Page's superb acoustic guitar, mandolin, and the voice of Robert Plant that all weave and soar like eagles on 'Battle of Evermore' (with the late Sandy Denny from Fairport Convention guesting ), 'Going to California', and 'Stairway to Heaven' provided the contrast Led Zeppelin mastermind Jimmy Page calls 'light and shade', emulated by pop, rock, and country Artists ever since.

LA trio Beauty School Dropout recently released their "Boys Do Cry" EP and to celebrate we asked vocalist Cole Hutzler to tell us about the single "Demons". Here is the story:

Our single 'Demons' is a bit of a self-reflection digging into our past vices and how they've affected who we are today. Fortunately, through all the odds I think we've turned out quite alright but growing up I had a lack of self-discipline that took me to some dark places. Everybody seems to deal with their own iteration of whatever that means to them, so we figured 'Demons' is a great way of saying 'f*** it' and embracing our whole, true selves. (continue)

Nashville based Americana duo ELDR (husband and wife Jameson Elder and Hanna Rae) just released their debut EP, "Nowhere Else To Go," and to celebrate we asked Jameson to tell us about the song "Safe With You". Here is the story:

It's January of 2020. The night's are long and dark. Our neighborhood has had some questionable behavior lately, so we've been hearing a few more sirens than usual. One night, around 1 or 2 o'clock in the morning, Hanna woke me up. "Something's happening outside, I just heard screaming." That's clearly not something you want to hear in the middle of the night. So, like the dutiful husband I am, I went to look out the window. Nothing. So I step out the front door. As soon as I do, I see a flurry of small animals scamper away. Apparently the neighborhood cats decided our bedroom window was a great place for a fight. (continue)
