1-Radio ROCK AMERICA©: Classic Rock & Progressive
1-Radio ROCK AMERICA© is a USA based progressive rock Internet radio station. We broadcast a mixture of American and British classic rock and progressive music from the 1970s and the 1960s. The music we play is not what you might find on the average classic rock radio station. 1-Radio ROCK AMERICA© plays the tracks that other stations no longer play: the forgotten tracks and the long fifteen minute tracks. 1-Radio ROCK AMERICA© remembers the emergence of Rock and Progressive music in the 1970s and examines the roots of Progressive Rock and Psychedelic Rock in the 1960s. This station looks back to an era when rock musicians were beginning to take their art seriously; though some would say too seriously. But it was a time when people began to really listen to popular music, and listen for long periods of time: rock songs had begun to resemble symphonies. The music of these bands was largely produced without the sole consideration of being commercial, band members preferred instead to make music of their own choice. Many of the artists from this era have endured, withstanding the test of time, and remain equally as popular today as they were forty years ago.
