A New Home For Rodney On The Roq

DJ Rodney Bingenheimer was a holdover from the last great era of Rock And Roll. His weekly “Rodney On The Roq” program was the only remaining thread linking KROQ FM to it’s glorious peak in the 1980s. While the whole of KROQ ceased to be groundbreaking decades ago, Rodney continued on carrying the torch for Punk, Alternative and Avant Guard artists until finally, he was told to pack up his headphones and leave in June of 2017. Since the legendary KROQ stopped being relevant sometime in the 90s, it’s a miracle Rodney hung on as long as he did.

The list of bands Bingenheimer broke in America is impressive and unending. Blondie, Cheap Trick, Joan Jett, Duran Duran, The Ramones, Go-Go’s, The Bangles and Dramarama are just a few. The good news is, the “Mayor Of The Sunset Strip” has now joined his fellow former KROQ stalwarts like Richard Blade, Swedish Egil and Sluggo on Sirius XM. Like the old days, Rodney can still be heard on Sundays. Now he’s on Little Steven’s Underground Garage- channel 21 at 6:00 PM PST.
