"The Rhino Podcast" Series Begins Today

LOS ANGELES - Rhino Records, the catalog division of Warner Music Group, has announced the debut of "The Rhino Podcast" in conjunction with the label's ongoing 40th Anniversary celebration.

The first episode focuses on the punk rock pioneers the Ramones and is available now on all major podcast outlets, with upcoming episodes focusing on The Smiths, Gene Simmons, The Cars, The Monkees, and Montrose. "The Rhino Podcast" is a bi-weekly series produced by PopCult and hosted by Dennis Scheyer and Rich Mahan. Each episode offers listeners a deep dive into classic artists and albums with music, interviews with your favorite musicians, and a wealth of behind-the-scenes stories.

"Rhino has set the standard in music curation for 40 years, so it is a natural progression for us to offer our unique perspective and expertise to music fans in 'The Rhino Podcast'" says Rhino President Mark Pinkus. "Drawing from the unparalleled Warner Music catalog gives us an endless list of legendary artists to spotlight, offering listeners a deeper experience with some of the greatest music of all time."

"We've seen time and again how good, carefully curated content drives fans to discover and in this case, hopefully re-discover classic music," says John Hughes, Executive Producer and Rhino VP of Fan Engagement. "As a music fan, this is the kind of podcast I would want to listen to, with the artists, producers, and even hardcore fans taking part."

The centerpiece of the first episode of "The Rhino Podcast" is a conversation with engineer and producer Ed Stasium about the making of the Ramones' landmark third album, Rocket To Russia and his contributions to the recent 40th Anniversary Edition of the punk classic. The set's bonus material includes a December 1977 concert recorded in Scotland that took place just a few days before Stasium recorded the Ramones' classic live album, It's Alive.
