Sammy Hagar to launch radio countdown show

Sammy Hagar will launch a new radio program, “Sammy Hagar's Top Rock Countdown”, this spring via Envisage Radio Group.

The weekly show will see Hagar count down lists of his favorite party songs, comeback albums, unsung heroes or best tunes from a specific year or decade.

“After more than 40 years in Rock & Roll,” says Hagar, “I’ve got a lot of knowledge, a lot of love, and always a lot to say so this is going to be a blast.”

Last fall, Hagar released his latest album, “Lite Roast”; the project teams Hagar with Waboritas guitarist Vic Johnson to deliver stripped-down versions of tunes from his career.

“Lite Roast” was inspired by the rehearsals for Sammy’s appearance at the Acoustic-4-A-Cure benefit show in May, which raised funds for the Pediatric Cancer Program at the University Of California, San Francisco UCSF Benioff Children's Hospital.
