Rock Profiles

Special Programming, airing on various days and times

Rock Profiles, an hour long look into the music, lives and legacies of the musicians who defined a uniquely creative era by breaking boundaries and finding new influences... while they not only ushered in social as well as political change but also created immensely popular music that has truly stood the test of time.

Join Maggie LePique for a monthly series, Rock Profiles, that started off with a look at the music of guitarist Jimi Hendrix.
