Truth About Rock (Dead Horse Rewind)

It’s been a while since we’ve opened up the audio vaults at The Five Count headquarters. To hold you over until the new show this Saturday, please enjoy this blast from the past. This episode of The Five Count is from Oct. 6, 2007. During this episode, with a little help from the Peters Brothers, we discussed the “Truth About Rock.” The Five Count is usually all about fun and games, but for this show we discussed the dangers of today’s secular music. The Peters Brothers examined the lives of rock stars, the lyrics in today’s popular rock songs, and the deadly craze of backward-masking. We think a show like this was long overdue in Southern Minnesota and we hope it was eye-opening for everyone who heard it. Burn your records!


The Five Count’s 12-Year Anniversary – The Five Count Remembers Muhammad Ali…

This was the special 12-year anniversary edition of The Five Count!

Thanks for sticking with The Five Count all these years!
