Almost Acoustic Christmas: Photos, recaps, interviews, and more!

The legendary Rodney on the Roq hosted his final show on KROQ earlier this morning. The 4-hour farewell included some of Rodney’s favorite tracks, interviews with some very special guests, and voicemails from a few of Rodney’s famous friends. Listen to everything (except the music) below.

For 40 years, Rodney has been one of the most influential voices on the radio and has helped discover and promote so many great musicians. Rodney helped shape KROQ into the great station it is today and we wish him nothing but great success in the future.
