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 35 years, he's their own Uncle Joe... and this is his web site.
