My dad introduced me to these amazing segments on the Mark in the Morning show, part of 100.3 The Sound LA. In them, a guy named Christian Hand would take a classic rock song and dissect it. Track by track he’d walk you through how a hit song was assembled and point out the nuance and beauty behind each recording. They’re incredible to listen to.
On August 3, 2016, the Mark in the Morning show ended so it’s unlikely that there will be any new breakdown’s by Christian Hand. I’ve assembled all the segments I can find and posted them in iTunes podcast format. Listen to them while you can before they’re taken down.
