The impact of Italian-American singers and musicians on rock and pop music is incredible and immeasurable. Hundreds of acts. Thousands of songs. And an endless universe of solo stars that’s too vast to explore in just one show. So, for this episode, we’ve narrowed it down to only groups primarily composed of or fronted by Italian-Americans rather than showcasing individual singers.


We’ll feature the 40 greatest Italian-American acts in rock and pop history – from the 1950s all the way to the present day. We’ll hear from the Four Seasons, the Duprees, Dion & The Belmonts, the Angels, Santo & Johnny, Joey Dee & the Starliters, the Outsiders, the Four Aces, Aerosmith, Bon Jovi, and Chicago among many others.


Our resident rockologist, Ken Deutsch, joins us along with a special guest expert on Italian-American groups, Nay Nassar, to add some context to our countdown. Here it all here.
