Not only is there good memorabilia, there is also bad memorabilia, AKA "crud." Among these "artifacts" are a wooden spoon signed by John Lennon and Yoko Ono, a piece of Michael Jackson's toast, and something worth a Google, a tremendously garish as heck birdhouse designed by country stars Tim McGraw and Faith Hill. We'll hear all about the weirdest things that once belonged to music stars auctioned off by collectors and profiteers alike on this week's Rock School!

Rs_logo_small If you are a collector of any sort, you will know that there are some things worth collecting, such as a signed copy of a Beatle's album, and some things worth passing up.

We'll be exploring the darkest reaches of the world of collections and showcasing the oddest and strangest peices of rock memorabilia that has ever been sold off. Many strange things, supplemented by great music, on this week's Rock School!
