KWCW Show of the Week

Daniel Kim

Show: ‘Blast from the Musical Past’

Time: Mondays, 2 p.m. – 4 p.m.

Host: Eric Anderson

History is filled with many influential musical artists and styles. For host of “Blast from the Musical Past,” first-year Eric Anderson, classic rock is one genre that has influenced his musical taste. Although his show focuses primarily on classic rock from the 1960s to the 1990s, he also tries to include more of the under-the-radar musical artists. Within each week’s show, Anderson aims to have one featured artist and his or her musical accomplishments, giving him a chance to explore new, unknown artists.

While Anderson has found new musical artists he did not know before, some common featured artists that come back to his show are Jimi Hendrix, B-52, Rush, Boston and Fleetwood Mac. Anderson’s show illustrates the influence of classic rock and will continue to explore its many hidden treasures.
