Episode Description: It's our 100th episode and we are celebrating in a big way. We are honored to have on the show with us, Y & T founding member Dave Meniketti. We figured in Dave's 45 year career, there hasn't been a question he hasn't answered, so our man Hollywood came up with the idea of giving Dave the option to pick 3 albums from different eras of Y & T's career to discuss. Dave picks an awesome 3 pack of albums and shares some great stories with us about the band and the recording of each of the albums. What's The Story ?: I am a huge Y & T fan and have been since the mid 80s. My fandom pales in comparison to Sonny "Hollywood" Pooni. Sonny has seen the band 49 times as of this recording. According to him, if you grew up a rock fan in the Bay Area of California, you have a responsibility of being a Y & T fan. So it goes without saying when we needed a very special guest for our 100th episode, we looked no farther than Sonny's fellow California brother, and the leader of one of Sonny's top 5 bands, Y & T's Dave Meniketti. This band has meant so much to Sonny over his Growin' Up Rock years that I wanted to share the intro to this episode in his own words. "Growin’ up in Northern California, Y&T is a major part of my Growin’ Up Rock story. To this day, it drives me absolutely nuts when a “rock” fan doesn’t know who Y&T is…especially if they are from California. Even though they have been rockin’ the world for 45 years, the passion and work ethic has never wavered. We are so honored to have with us, the absolute hero of my teenage years, the underrated vocalist and guitarist of Y&T and one of the hardest working guys in rock, Mr. Dave Meniketti." Sit back and enjoy as we take a trip with Dave through 3 very different periods in the band's career covering three killer albums.
