Joe Benson

I've been playing music on the air since 1968, specifically on Southern California airwaves since 1980. Now, months after the sudden destruction of one L.A. radio institution, the dust has finally settled and it's time to rock! I've missed playing real music and playing with my extended family. I have stories to be told and songs people want to hear.

Joe Benson has hosted the nationally syndicated, weekly Off The Record program since 1998. As the host and co-writer in this collaboration with Westwood One, Joe shares his vast knowledge of classic rock artists and their music. You'll hear many of their behind the scenes stories and their best music. Off The Record airs every week on over 100 stations nationwide.
