There are plenty of reasons to admire and respect the talents of the great Linda Ronstadt. After this podcast you'll agree that there are reasons to worship at the altar of Linda. First off, she possesses one of the most pure and beautiful musical instruments in music history - her voice. Secondly, her fearless nature propelled her to explore any genre of music her heart wanted to try. Not only was she prolific in rock & pop, but she sang country, new wave, big band, traditional latin music and even opera with grace and power. This week Ben is giving over the reins of the podcast to two self-professed Linda fanatics - our old pals David Daskal and Karman Kruschke, who take Ben and the rest of us to school in the fine art of the incomparable Linda Ronstadt.

Excuse us while we give the drummer some. Everyone knows John Bonham and Keith Moon, and figuring out who is on the Mount Rushmore of rock and pop drummers is always in debate, but you know some of the obvious picks. The time has come for us to dig a little deeper. To showcase some of the drummers that are every bit as legendary and incredible as the big boys, they just don't always get the same amount of love. Rock drummer and rock drumming enthusiast Dustin Prince returns to All Time Top Ten and joins Ben on a mission to spread the gospel about the great drummers that SHOULD be as revered as the big boys. Here's the best of the rest.

If you haven't already, it's required listening to check out Episode 26 - Top Ten Rock Drummers Volume 1, sitting comfortably in our archives over at Mixcloud. Here's the link:

From June Carter to Lucinda Williams, the women that dominate the storied history of country music have one thing in common - the best of them are superstars with genuine talent and charisma, but their humble roots keep them real and authentic. These women took a hardscrabble upbringing and turned it into musical gold through pluck, wit and talent. Ben is taken to school in this week's podcast by two of country music's biggest fans. Susan Atkinson and Katie Medley cover a huge swath of the history of the genre and highlight the best of the best women to grace the Opry stage and make it to the big time in Nashville and beyond.

Did you ever hear a song that is so unbelievably bad and/or annoying that it's mere existence fills you with a white hot rage that must be vented, lest your apartment becomes a smoldering wreck? We have. Presented without mercy, here's another volume of Rage-Inducing Songs. Not as in "that metal song got me pumped up and now I wanna go break stuff"-rage, but rather "that song by C&C Music Factory is so goddamn annoying that I threw my cat out the window"-rage. Who better to help us down this dark journey than the master of irritation, the incomparable Matt Dinan, who joins Ben to do some good 'ol VENTING. Don't say we didn't say we didn't warn ya.

Hear Volume 1 of these little horrors with 2 more of our favorite angry people - DJ Hostettler & Dixie Jacobs of Body Futures. It's over at our archive page at Mixcloud. Here's a handy link:

The stories behind the formations of some of rock, pop & country's greatest supergroups are fascinating enough to fill a book. In fact, since typing this sentence, we here at All Time Top Ten have begun work on that very book, so back off, authors! Patent Pending!! But seriously, the very concept of a supergroup invites curiosity. Why did 3, 4 or 5 of our favorite musicians, singers and songwriters decide to get together and create a whole new artistic vision and sound? Each story is different but either way, the bottom line is we love it when our heroes get together. Ben is joined by 2/3 of a rising supergroup in the Los Angeles area - Kirsten and Manda of Calico The Band, a roots rock/country pop trio comprised of 3 of the most talented singer/songwriters in LA. Ben, Kirsten and Manda break down the stories behind the best supergroups of all time and spin some amazing examples of their handiwork.

Calico The Band is hard at work on their 2nd album. They can be seen & heard in further detail at their website: http://www.calicotheband.com

Maybe there's something in the water from those 10,000 lakes, but we find it delightfully odd that the land that brought you Scotch tape, the stapler and Bisquick is also home to Paul Westerberg, Robert Zimmerman and Prince Rogers Nelson. It seems like a part of the world that spends half it's time buried in snow and cold would not be the most fertile breeding ground for great music and musicians, but history shows us that it's true. Ben is joined in GoodList Studios by old pal and Minnesota native Ryan Stockstad to revel in this odd fact. They also dig deep and play some amazing music from some of the most revered singers & songwriters in the world who just happen to be from The Gopher State. From the 1940's to the 1980's to today, the great state of Minnesota has been a vibrant part of the music scene since there was one. So grab a hot dish and some pop, and you'll be rockin' out in no time, dontcha know!

Ryan is hard at work prepping for this year's Halloween Horror Picks over at PopCultureBeast.com. It's a ways away but check out some archived episodes:

The following is a disclaimer from the All Time Top Ten legal team.

In regards to the new podcast - Top Ten Shredding Guitar Solos, All Time Top Ten is not responsible for shattered eardrums, melted faces, blown minds, or strained necks (be they strained from head banging or spinning 360 degrees - please refer to blown minds), nor is All Time Top Ten responsible for reckless and impossibly fast driving which may occur while listening to this podcast. Listen at your own risk. Thank you.

Now that that's out of the way, we just want to invite all responsible and sane lovers of shredding guitar solos to enjoy the following podcast. Ben and his special guest, a guitar player who has been known to shred at will on stage and in the studio in his myriad of musical projects, all while maintaining the mensch status that makes him a great dude, first time guest Alex Dubovoy joins the podcast via Skype all the way from New York to help break down the best of the best in SHREDDING. These aren't necessarily the greatest guitar solos ever, but they may win the prize for most fun, most ridiculous and most face-melting. See above disclaimer for further clarification.

Alex's band Jeebus is getting ready to release their new album. Find out more at The Congregation Of Vapors on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/thecongregationofvapors

We here at ATTT will concede the idea that technically EVERY voice is unique. However, for our purposes, let's just suggest that 99% of all singers in rock, pop, country, r&b, soul and hip hop are carbon copies or watered-down versions of each other, which is mostly true. The artists we want to highlight this week have TRULY distinctive voices. These are voices that nobody sounded like before and if anyone sounded like them afterwards, it was a blatant attempt at a copy. If you look at a singing voice as a musical instrument, these particular instruments are either from outer space or some other dimension we were lucky enough to have brief access to through these recordings. Before we get too pretentious with this topic, we'll shut up and let you have a listen. Ben's guest this week is the one and only Gabe Scalone, whose own voice is as unique as his taste in music. Enjoy Ben and Gabe's take on this fascinating topic.

Let's see if we can't make this week's topic any clearer. Everyone loves Led Zeppelin, Jimi Hendrix, Paul Simon and Metallica. These acts get played on the radio ad nauseam. However, as much as we like "Stairway To Heaven", "All Along The Watchtower", "Kodachrome" and "Enter Sandman", these songs that you hear on classic rock and oldies radio about 30 times a day are NOT their best songs. In fact, these revered and celebrated artists' best song is NEVER heard on the radio. This countdown is dedicated to those amazing tracks. Ben is joined by "pal of the podcast" Mike Dawson to follow up a recent episode they did - Top Ten Songs About Radio - with an episode that tears down the very concept of radio, and it's penchant to convince you that the song you've heard 20,000 times on the airwaves is somehow the best that these artists can offer, when in fact there's amazing hidden gems that never get heard by the masses. These are those elusive tracks.

Mike Dawson is a busy, busy dude. In addition to being the voice of The Adam Carolla Show, his stellar podcast Front Of House is back with new episodes. Find out more at: https://soundcloud.com/dawsangeles

Mike can also be found on the Twitter machine giving sound advice on music and life at https://twitter.com/DawsAngeles

Let's set the scene. You're in your car at a red light. You're blasting "Don't Fight It" by Kenny Loggins and Steve Perry at top volume. You have the windows down. Someone pulls up next to you. Do you A) Turn it up louder, pump your fist and sing along, or B) Turn about as red as an apple, immediately turn down the volume, sink slowly in your seat, crawl into a hole of shame and guilt. If you said A, you are the raddest person on the planet and nothing can phase you. We're jealous beyond comprehension at your complete lack of self-awareness. If you said B, you are a normal human being and although you feel guilty about your love for that song, your love is real and should be commended. This week's podcast features 20 songs that could easily fit this scenario and all of these songs come from the decade that invented the guilty pleasure - The 80's. Ben is joined in GoodList Studios by the one and only Frank Nicotero, comedian, game show/reality show host and all-around mensch. Ben and Frank both have an affinity for the guiltiest of pleasures from that decade that excelled in them. These top ten lists are their confession.

Frank Nicotero can be found on stage and screen and online in a million different places. Follow his awesome career by liking him on Facebook:
