About This Show

The Bottomless Radio Hour is a cultural examination of the modern human condition, with particular attention given to the eponymous rock band Van Halen (more specifically the Diamond Dave years) and their influence on the American songbook, as well as society at large. We incorporate interviews, roundtable discussions, inspiring poetry, investigative reporting and deep cuts as we attempt to answer the age-old question: Why are Van Halen songs so rockin’? Additionally we may attempt to answer these other questions too: Does the CIA regret their role in breaking up the band after the album 1984 was released? Are the religious undertones heard throughout the Van Halen discography there on purpose? Is David Lee Roth gay, straight or asexual? What is Michael Anthony doing right now, at this moment?

These are but a few examples of the issues we explore on The Bottomless Radio Hour. We hope you will join us next time for some insightful analysis and refreshing perspectives. If you are interested in sending money to support the important work we do, please do not hesitate to do so.
