Retropulse Music is an online magazine that strives to provide the best behind the scenes interviews with artists of the second generation of Rock N’ Roll.  We deliver interviews in a wide variety of formats including film, print and radio talk show.  Retropulse also features reviews and opinions centered around various topics of classic rock.

Recently, Retropulse Music has added a radio talk show component to the online magazine.  Via Edinboro University’s radio station, WFSE 88.9, RM now hosts an afternoon talk show that airs in Erie and Edinboro markets of Pennsylvania.  Also, with a live stream, RM can be heard around the world by visiting the WFSE website.
