Music that was meant to be listened to, from the golden age of FM Rock radio, 1968-1976.

Rockin’ in the Days of Confusion is a weekly 60-minute show that revisits the golden age of rock radio (roughly the years 1968-76). Emphasis is on longer album tracks from a variety of then-emerging rock sub-genres, including hard rock, folk-rock (both British and American), heavy metal, jazz-rock fusion, art-rock and more experimental tracks that defy easy classification. As is the case with our sister show, Stuck in the Psychedelic Era, Rockin’ in the Days of Confusion has no pre-recorded jingles or liners. The Hermit's commentary is focused on the music itself, with additional track information available at thehermitrambles.blogspot.com.
