Yacht Rock Lives!

As KSCR's resident soft rock connoisseur, I enjoyed every smooth minute of the Channel101.com "series" Yacht Rock during its 10-episode run from 2005-2006. Each month J.D. Ryznar and Hunter Stair (of VH1's short-lived Acceptable TV), along with a talented supporting cast, re-enacted the creative inspiration for the gentlest grooves of the late '70s and early '80s, lampooning everyone from Kenny Loggins to Michael Jackson to Warren G.

Since then, Yacht Rock has become a cultural mini-phenomenon (mostly amongst people who own a Michael McDonald solo album). Due to popular demand, the YR crew got together to make one last episode detailing the exegesis of "Footloose," a story which may or may not involve a deranged Jimmy Buffet holding Loggins hostage and a climatic massacre of Parrotheads. Yah mo check it out.
