This weeks episode is all about Yacht Rock, the last of a trilogy of episodes that were all recorded on one raucous night in the studio. Kenny Loggins should have been a guest.
"Yacht rock (originally known as adult-oriented rock) is a retrospective term for certain soft rock music that peaked in popularity between the 1970s and 1980s, becoming one of the biggest genres of its era. The genre is closely associated with high-quality production, clean vocals, and a focus on big-hearted melodies. Some of the most popular acts included Hall & Oates, Michael McDonald, Kenny Loggins, Steely Dan and Toto." -Wikipedia
