Show 329: Hobbit Rock – Playlist and Archived Stream


It’s been teased, short sets have been explored, but a full Listen Up! show of the sub-micro-genre of “Hobbit Rock” has yet to happen til…now. What is “Hobbit Rock”? Tune in as we attempt to define it by rambling on into the misty mountains with some tales of wizards, gnomes and other middle earth creatures tossed into proglicious rock, folk, and other sounds.
