RNRNFBest Classic VersionLove classic rock’n’roll? Live in the New York metro area? You’re in luck! Rock radio legend Dennis Elsas will present his fascinating live multimedia show, “Rock ‘N’ Roll Never Forgets,” on Saturday April 16th 8 PM at Landmark on Main Street in Port Washington, NY (just east of New York City on Long Island).

“Rock ‘N’ Roll Never Forgets” brings rock and radio memories alive in an evening of reminiscences and highlights from Elsas’ historic interviews with such icons as John Lennon, Elton John, Jerry Garcia, Pete Townshend and more. Starting out at the legendary WNEW-FM and now heard daily on New York’s WFUV and SiriusXM Classic Vinyl (26). Elsas traces rock radio from the Top 40 he grew up on to the rise and blossoming of progressive album rock radio where he helped to shape that format as music director and an on-air personality at WNEW for over three decades.

Through it all Elsas serves as he has for so long as a genuine host. He recalls such memorable events as when John Lennon dropped in at WNEW in 1974 for a free-wheeling interview with Elsas in which he offered rare Beatles stories, chatted about city life and the weather, played DJ and even read commercials. Dennis recalls the pre-Internet days when DJs were community news, information and social sources. Such as when Elton John came by the day after his Madison Square Garden show that same year to report that Lennon had showed up and sat in, and then spent two hours hanging and talking with Dennis on-air.

That same engaging charm that has made Elsas a beloved radio personality and favorite interviewer for many top stars makes Rock ‘N’ Roll Never Forgets delightful entertainment and an unforgettable evening. Here at Best Classic Bands we’ve been honored to share his conversations with Graham Nash, Robert Plant, John Fogerty and Gregg Allman.
