Classic Rock Liberation with Chris Lopez

Classic Rock Liberation with Chris Lopez Curated Classic Rock playlists on Spotify and Amazon Music full of the most premium rock of the 1960 A: It is Classic Rock Radio done right. Q: Really? Q: Thanks.

Classic Rock Liberation Q & A:

Q: What is Classic Rock Liberation? Q: What is the purpose of your station? A: It is designed to revolutionize society's perspective on Classic Rock music by playing the choicest selection of songs from the genre interspersed with my personal insights and spread by violence when necessary. Q: Do you play Guns'N'Roses? A: Guns'N'Roses is not Classic Rock. Q: Why does

my local Classic Rock radio station play G'n'R? A: Because this Classic Rock Liberation has just begun--so let us now join together in revolt as lover's of music from the greatest chapter in rock history and end this travesty! Q: Do you consider yourself a hero? A: Yes, and you can be a hero too, by listening. A: No, but it would be really cool if you did anyhow. A: That's not a question...but thanks anyway.

That's right. Nothing, but 2 hours packed to the gills with delicious vinyl! Come check it out Tuesday night at 6 Pacific/9 Eastern on 103.3 WWRO!

"So with a nod to my fellow WWRO DJ Smokin' Joe (always bringing the jams every Friday on the Hi Fi Dream Machine). I am Chris Lopez and this is the Lo Fi Dream Machine.

"So..what, then?" You're asking yourself. "It's like, good music, but crappy sound?" Well, that's a somewhat crude way to put it, but yeah kind of. The sound quality will vary and I'm definitely using this as an opportunity to play some recordings I typically wouldn't, but the idea is to feature performances that are raw and brilliant. Creative honesty, warts and all."

Click here tonight at 6 Pacific/9 Eastern to take a LoFi journey through some greats of the 60's and 70's!

Tonight at 6 PST on 103.3 WWRO it's The Classic Rock Liberation Short-Long! That's what we used to call the glorious hairstyle known as The Mullet in my neck of the woods back in the day. 🤘

It's also what I'm calling this episode. Instead of playing a bunch of killer shorties or big bad jammers I decided to do both in one unprecedented Classic Rock extravaganza! What you'll get is a pile of rock gems that are 2 minutes or less followed by a vintage, longboy, in-studio jam 10 minutes or more in length. Wash, rinse, and repeat for 2 hours. What could be better? Maybe if the show were actually about mullets? Perhaps next episode.

Artists Include: , , , , , , and

Features Include: "The Deep Stuff" and "Holy Crap That's An Awesome Jam!"

See you there...

The show where I borrow the Delorian from ol Doc Brown in order to have a look at Classic Rock artists at different points in time.

Doesn't make any sense you say. Well, neither did "Back to the Future" and you still watch it every time it's on TBS (which is often).

The time has come folks for your monthly dose of Classic Rock Liberation on WWRO!

https://1033wwro.com/

Admittedly, this episode may not be my most accessible. Musically though, it's probably one of my most awesome! This month I shall focus in on international tunes that contain "No English, Thank You" 🚫🇺🇸😁.

The other kicker is my self-imposed rule of No Instrumentals Allowed. That means three hours basking in some of the finest underappreciated rock musicianship of the 60's and 70's with nothing but the beautiful and fiery vocalizations of foreign tongues!🇸🇯🇦🇷🇮🇹🇩🇪🇳🇬🇭🇺, etc. I also talk a bit too...in English...which IS allowed. I try my hand at a little French too 🇨🇵!

So go to work, take a nap, do all the chores, set an alarm, get Google translate booted up. Do whatever you need to to, just BE THERE!

A few from the catalog of Brewer and Shipley. Conspicuously missing is the "Tarkio" album which I'm pretty sure I used to have and is, pretty undeniably, their best album.

These are good too though. Some better than others. I've always enjoyed their clean take on the folk-rock sound. Great harmonies, some well crafted tunes. Easy to find and cheap, which is always nice.

One of B & S's songs will grace the airwaves tonight on 103.3 WWRO (can you guess which one?). A breezy uplifting melody to go nicely with the show's theme "Sunshine & Rainbows". 🌞🌈✌️

It's Summer and it's time to get happy with some overtly positive Classic Rock. It all still totally rocks of course and will include some Deep Stuff and an especially Awesome Jam all with an aim to lift your spirits and give you something to smile about.

Join me tonight as I try to keep the minor chords to a minimum and my levels of cynicism at bay.

Hope to see you there.👀

It's Summer time kids! You know what that means. Time for old man Lopez to mucho fiesta and mucho siesta. The upshot of this is that I'll be spending a bit less time behind the mic. Instead of my typical two shows a month I will be be doing a paltry ONE SHOW a month.

Never fear however! This is actually great news for all of you fans of the wild and wonderful world of Classic Rock in all of it's multi-faceted splendor. None other than vinyl ju**ie extrordinaire Natalie Testa ( aka on Instagram) will be filling in for me as a special treat for y'all throughout the summer.

Here she is in her own words, discussing her show:

"Chris Lopez, who hosts a favorite @103.3wwro program of mine, !"

Oops. 😏 Wrong quote. Here it is:

"a favorite @103.3wwro program of mine, !"

My bad 😬. Here we go:

"FAVORITE PROGRAM OF MINE!!!"

Alright. Enough messing around. This is really what she says about HER show:

"Here I am, pulling some stellar slabs for your listening pleasure. I’ll be bringing you 'A Guide to the Weird & Wonderful,' sending you a glimpse of my personal collection over the airwaves, from my listening room to yours."

And what a stellar collection it is!!! Just give a swipe up top to see some of the bounty that awaits. Gems galore from the single greatest era in rock music!

Check out "A Guide To The Weird & Wonderful" this Tuesday at 6 PST and look for me back on the air with a fresh new episode on June 29th.

Have a great summer and DON'T FORGET TO BOOGIE...and use sunscreen. Very important.

Hello friends! I know you're all feeling a bit down after that Tuesday grind. Some of you may have even had a three day weekend which makes the situation even worse.

Well, do not despair! Old man Lopez is here to give you something to be excited about. Namely, three hours of organ drenched Classic Rock. There's also plenty of drums, bass, and sweet guitar (just in case you were curious).

You could do alot worse on a Tuesday!

Happening Tonight at 6 PST (9 Eastern)! Make all necessary preparations.

Some high concept shenanigans going on on the big show tonight! I will be playing killer tracks by some of the most pervasive rock artists of the 60's and 70's and then matching these bands up with lesser-known artists with a similar feel. I'll be attempting to do the thing with artists such as Pink Floyd, Hendrix, The Grateful Dead, CCR and many more.

Are there jammers? You bet! Funky little rippers? Check! A bustling beauty from an enigmatic, obscure outfit whose name is just three seemingly random numbers? But of course. I've even got something for you snooty Dylan fans.

It's CRL "Choice Cuts LIVE!!!"

Dial up the CRL Funkaroo being broadcast all throughout San Marcos, CA on the mighty AM 1320, also available for streaming on the world wide web of knowledge and entertainment. Today 3-5PM PST and Monday 9-12PM.

A whole gob of primo funky rock cuts from the 60's and 70's including a stellar jam from early Chicago and a visit from Cheezy Peter Cetera.

Maybe bring some snacks if you can and if you could stick around after and help with the clean up that would be much appreciated. 👍👌👌

See you there.

Hey everyone. First Tuesday of the month. You know what that means! That's right, garbage day. Make sure it's out by the curb cause those people come super early and you DO NOT want to miss it.

After you've got that all sqaured away you should pop on over to 103.3 WWRO (time travel radio) and check out the latest and greatest. All night long (8-11 anyway) I will be spinning great acoustic tunes of the 60's and 70's, discussing the medium in all it's glory, and pondering the mysteries of the Classic Rock Kingdom. Such as: why would any legitimate band name themselves "Hard Meat"? There's even a Pauly Shore reference. Really, this show has it all. Everything except screeching guitars.

Yes.All in all it's a laidback affair, but there are definitely a few numbers (including one featuring the fiery fingers of John Mclaughlin) that'll blow your hair back.

See you there. Seriously though, don't forget the trash.

Come relive all off the happiest moments of 2020 all over again! Namely, my greatest classic rock discoveries of the year. Did anything else happen?

Three hours of stellar rock-n-roll (hopefully a bunch of which you've never heard). And don't forget my jokes. Voted to be "mostly okay" by multiple listeners! 💥

Listen in on Palomar College's award winning KKSM. On the radio if you're in the area, online following the following link:

Scientific research has now proven that the old addage "bad things come in threes" is actually a complete lie. In fact the opposite is true.

Please tune in to KKSM today starting at 3pm or Monday at 9am to hear the complete research case study: "Classic Rock Liberation In 3's (or how the scientific community learned to stop worrying and love the 3's)".

It's really quite fascinating.
