Rock it Out! Blog: Can Beats 1 Radio Save Alt-Rock Radio?

Plus, the RIO!B panel reviews the week's biggest singles, and discusses how much source material is too much.

Welcome, rocker nation, to a brand new episode of Rock it Out! Blog. Every Friday, host Sami Jarroush rounds together an esteemed panel of critics, musicians, and comedians to discuss the week’s biggest headlines.

This week’s panel consists of WKQX-FM on-air talent Kevin Kellam, comedian Ju Lee Anna, and Consequence of Sound staff writer Matt Melis. They start things off by discussing Apple Music’s Beats 1 Radio and whether or not it’s a can reinvigorate alternative-rock radio.

They also review the newest tracks from Prince, Beach House, and Pharrell, and talk about upcoming movie remakes and reboots and whether or not they should pay homage to the original source material.

We also make our way to Chicago’s Kuma’s Corner for a look at their July Burger of the Month, and we bring you another installment of Rap Lyrics with Miss Staskel.
