In the wee hours of August 1, 1981, something called Music Television – or MTV – was born. Consisting of nothing but music videos 24/7, it was a revolution in the music industry and would have an impact on many areas of culture in the States of America and internationally. On the first of a two-part episode, the Renegades Radio Podcast will celebrate the birth of MTV 38 years ago, remember how good it once was and, yes, even discuss the present demise of the once powerful channel.
This week on the Renegades Radio Podcast, we’re coming to you from the Outer Banks of North Carolina! And what better thing to do than to take a look at the history of beach music!
When you think of “beach music,” it’s more than just the Beach Boys, however. There’s almost a “East Coast/West Coast” thing to it – WAY before Tupac Shakur and the Notorious B.I.G.! Take a trip with us through some of the hits of beach music on this week’s edition of the Renegades Radio Podcast!

On or about this day in 1776, a group of men met in Independence Hall in Philadelphia and changed the world. With one document that proclaimed that “all men are created equal,” the Founding Fathers brought forth the United States of America.
But how well have the descendants of those Founding Fathers upheld those beliefs?
On this episode of the Renegades Radio Podcast, we’ll celebrate Independence Day by looking at some of the issues in the U. S. with some of the greatest songwriters in history, including Johnny Cash, Bruce Springsteen and Bob Dylan. Listen now and celebrate the 4th of July along with Renegades Radio!

In April 1994, Nirvana front man Kurt Cobain was found in his garage in Seattle, dead from a single shotgun blast to the head. It’s been 25 years since his passing and, over that time, Cobain has gone from just the leader of a band to one of the iconic figures of the 90s and of the grunge genre. In this edition of the Renegades Radio Podcast, we’ll look back at Cobain’s life and try to figure out how a bright light burned himself out so quickly.
Recently the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame held its induction ceremonies, enshrining such legends of rock as Stevie Nicks, The Zombies, and Def Leppard into the Valhalla of rock music.
