Episode 27: Rock Hall 19 Induction w/ Sal Cirrincione

Our buddy Sal joined us on the podcast this morning after attending the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony over the weekend. We got his perspective on how things went and what folks have to look forward to when they see select portions on HBO.

We also planned a trip to hang out and watch Baseball.

Sal Cirrincione, w Roger Daltry of The Who

A native of Brooklyn, New York, Sal Cirrincione got his start in 1983 at the legendary WNEW-FM/AM in New York City where he worked in news production, promotion and as a producer for remote broadcasts. In 1987, he headed to Connecticut to become a promotion director at WRKI in Danbury, followed by, in the same role, WHCN in Hartford.

In 1990, Sal returned to New York City, first taking a position at Neer Perfect Productions, followed three years later by MJI Broadcasting where he created a daily music news and audio service for rock radio. Today’s Rock Facts, and its spinoff, The Classic Daily, are still the leading sources of music news and artist interviews for over 100 of the top rock and classic rock stations across America.

MJI was purchased by Premiere Radio Networks in 1999 and Sal made the transition where he continues in his role as Senior Director of Rock Programming and Specials. In addition to writing The Classic Daily, he is also responsible for artist interviews, including numerous sessions with members of The Beatles, Rolling Stones, Led Zeppelin, The Who, Eric Clapton, Bruce Springsteen, Elton John, U2 and hundreds of others. He also covers top music events around the world; produces award-winning specials, including iHEARTRADIO’s Icons series; and has been the MC on the four Moody Blues Cruises, its spinoff, On the Blue, as well as the Rock Legends Cruise 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 & 7.

He resides in New Jersey with his dog Brody.
