The Rock Menagerie has evolved from its beginnings as an outlet for album tracks to theme-based programming, i.e. each week’s music shares a common bond. Past highlights include the annual Halloween Special and the nights where the songs were about dogs, Hollywood or Mother’s Day.

The music featured on the Rock Menagerie is generally up tempo rock-and-roll songs from 1964 to present, all selected by host Dale Gleitz. The play list includes all genres of rock and roll. On a given Sunday night, you might hear several of these musical classifications: heavy metal, jazz fusion, bubble gum, new wave, stadium rock, novelty songs, comedy bits, country rock, psychedelic, etc.
