About Ray Shasho 'The Classic Rock Music Reporter'

Ray Shasho with John Paul Jones (Led Zeppelin)

Ray Shasho and Mark Lindsay (Paul Revere & the Raiders
The longevity of Rock and Roll is second to none.
If today's radio stations would only support these legendary musicians and promote their latest recordings, the music world would be in a much smarter place. Then these great artists wouldn't be isolated by the "Classic Rock" label and younger generations can take notice. It's the music that made radio great not the deejay. Ray Shasho was labeled 'Rock Raymond' in high school after demonstrating his obsession for rock music.

Shasho became a Top 40 radio deejay in the late '70s and early '80s under the air name Ray Richards. Ray's attended hundreds upon hundreds of rock concerts and has rubbed elbows with rock’s royalty.

-Proud to be Politically Incorrect in Washington,D.C.

The story is My Big Fat Greek Wedding MEETS Almost Famous MEETS Seinfeld.
