The Album Collection You Wish You Still Had. Assuming you had over 10,000 LPs in you collection like The Roots.

We focus on classic and deep tracks we bet you haven’t heard in many years. Many of the tunes you will hear on The Roots Radio never appeared on CD and were carefully transferred from the original classic LPs. We dig deep into the important albums you used to listen to in their entirety. We touch very lightly on the Classic Rock hits and bands the Classic Rock stations play over and over again. But the heart of what we play are those deeper album cuts that meant so much to you as you were growing up.

The Roots is also producing a growing number special them programs.

Blue Monday airs at 6PM on Mondays and features great tunes from the personal collections of our program producers. An hour of Free Form Album Blues and Rhythm & Blues.
