What is "THE ZOO"?
THE ZOO was a famous classic rock radio station (KZEW) in Dallas, Texas, that went on the air in 1973, during the height of the classic rock scene. As a huge fan of the station, I jumped at the chance to support a great group of guys at Vokal Media that brought the station back a few years ago as an internet radio stream. It really hit home to discover how many KZEW fans ('Zoo Freaks') were still around. So, as a nod to greatness, I named my rock show after the station and focus the show on the music they played.
I am a huge classic rock fan. I spent years collecting amazing and rare live concert footage. My friends noticed my collection and said "Dude, I'll bet others would want to see this". So I started developing a fun and interactive show around it. As a musician with a background in sound engineering and technology, I carefully enhanced each performance and developed a software system and game app to keep the music and good times flowing. Voilà! The virtual rock show was born!
But the show isn't just for the older generations. You'll see people of all generations and backgrounds having a blast at my shows. It's a testimony of how timeless and popular Classic Rock music really is!
