Father's Day is this Sunday. I know that because all my calendars say so. Not much gets by me when I have a calendar nearby.

During our weekly weekend theme meeting, Jim Free and I, who both don't have kids, were doing our usual 'what kind of music theme weekend should we come up with' brainstorming session. It's never an easy answer.

But there it was, as we were staring at a calendar, that this is Father's Day weekend. So how about a bit of a twist on the weekend theme, and call it a Founding Fathers of Classic Rock Weekend?

Basically, throughout this weekend, we will highlight the music from rock artists who in one way or another, helped shape what rock music became. Most of those artists are in a band, so we will play songs from said band, or if they are solo artists...well, you get the picture.

By the way, Happy Father's Day to all you Rockin' Dads! Take us wherever you go this weekend. You can hear us on your radio at 99.1 FM, online at 991thewhale.com, on your mobile phone with the new Whale App – search for 99.1 The Whale, and also as 99.1 The Whale on radioPup!
