Rock Radio Legend Celebrates Milestone
Envision Networks® would like to congratulate the host of Classic Rock Live, rock radio legend Pierre Robert (WMMR-FM/Philadelphia) on 35 straight years of broadcasting with 93.3 WMMR in Philadelphia. The legendary midday host moved from San Francisco in 1981 and has been entertaining Philadelphia with his iconic voice and passion for live classic rock ever since.
He has covered countless events including Woodstock ’94, Live Aid in 1985 and Live 8 in 2005, along with tours from The Who, Pearl Jam, The Rolling Stones and many more. Added in November 2010 to the Envision Rock Network with over 250 stations nationwide, Classic Rock Live and Pierre Robert can be heard on affiliated stations across the United States.
“Pierre Robert is magical with his ability to transport people back to all the legendary tours, and historic locations. His unmatched personal touch and our dedication to finding only the highest quality live music has made Classic Rock Live the ultimate in appointment listening,” said Steve Black, Producer of Classic Rock Live.
Classic Rock Live is the first “concert” radio show to adapt to the way people listen to music today by incorporating ten or more live performances from a variety of artists every hour, featuring rare and exclusive live versions of rock classics from such artists as Tom Petty, Aerosmith, The Who, U2, Eric Clapton, Jimi Hendrix and Stevie Ray Vaughan. Each week, Classic Rock Live includes the latest tour and artist news along with the exclusive “Wish You Were There,” segment, which highlights rock and roll dream pairings such as Jimmy Page joining Aerosmith on-stage or Roger Waters joined by Eric Clapton. Rarities are played in the “Unreleased Live” segment and the radio show ends each week with an “Encore,” featuring the iconic hits that you’ll always find in each band’s set list.
