Living Classic Rock from its very beginning - both on stage and on air since 1968 - music has been Joe Benson's life. Whether playing it, talking about it with artists and fans, or documenting it with his syndicated 'Off The Record' rock star interview program and his definitive 'UNCLE JOE'S RECORD GUIDES,' Benson's always been rocking! As a family member to millions of Southern California listeners for the past 36 years, he's their own Uncle Joe... and this is his web site.

But the reality is that Memorial Day was established to honor all the men and women who have served or are currently serving, and those who have made the ultimate sacrifice in defending our country and our freedoms. It's also a day to pay tribute to the families whose loved ones died, or were taken captive and never returned. We thank them for shouldering this burden, and for giving us our future at the cost of their own. The idea is that this Monday, before you hit the malls, light up the barbecue or hit the road, STOP for a moment and reflect.
