  • Episode 9 - Americas Oldies But Goodies - the '60s with guest Tom Garrett of the Classics IV1:00:00

EPISODE 9 - It’s pretty hard to get past “Spooky”, “Stormy”, and ”Traces”, without knowing that you’re listening to the Classics IV. During the ‘60s, when they were touring as Dennis Yost and the Classics IV, each one of those three songs sold over a million records. Dennis died in 1968 at the age of 65 and his long-time friend Tom Garrett found himself center stage taking over the vocals. It’s a story that could only grow up in the rock and roll ‘60s, and on today’s show, we talk with Tom Garrett and the band that is still touring.
