The HalShack RockCast has become a breath of fresh air to what had become a rather flaccid arena for what today’s FM radio plays, which can be nothing short of the same female (or male) singers practicing their vocal exercises over a producer’s loops or some recycled or borrowed beat that people had long forgotten.
Hal brings you the unpolished gems of what can (and will) be actual future storytellers brought to you via FM radio. A standard example is Kylie Odetta. Her voice can lift your spirits. At the same time,
Hal brings you a podcast that you can play when you have company over, if only for the purpose of ambience; however, his infectious enthusiasm grabs you into the songs he presents like the FM days of old when DJs kept you hanging on to your radio to hear the next good song.
Hal has the ability to take you back to the soul of what made you excited about music.
