In Episode 496 we welcome two of Pittsburgh’s own. Joining us is Iron City Rocks Pittsburgh Music Hall of Famer, Bret Michaels. Bret will be embarking on his Parti-Gras tour in 2023 with a July 15th stop at the Pavilion at Star Lake. Bret talks to us about the idea behind the tour which features Bret, Night Ranger, and Jefferson Starship along with Steve Augeri (formerly of Journey) and Mark McGrath (Sugar Ray) joining Bret’s band. He gives us his vision for what fans can expect from the time they fire up their portable grill in the parking lot, what to expect from each of the bands and some of the unique activities planned through the evening. Tickets on sale to the general public December 9th with pre-sale December 8th here.

We are also delighted to introduce Pittsburgh’s own Kenny Stockard, an R&B and Soul singer, who is set to release A Very Kenny Christmas on December 11. Kenny talks to us about his decision to leave the corporate world to pursue music, his 2022 debut album Chase Chance, the weight of putting together original Christmas music, the release show at Club Cafe on December 13th and so much more.
