Welcome to The Rock N Roll N Rhythm Review
​"Mike Carr with The Best by Far" welcomes you to "The Rock and Roll and Rhythm Review," heard live on Cruisin' 92.1 WVLT Saturday's from 8-11 PM Eastern Time.  The show specializes in Doo Wop / Street Corner Harmony and R&B Rockers and Sock-Knockers of the 50's and 60's.  

Aimed at pleasing the most sophisticated listener, this music intensive show combines records that the group harmony lover both knows and loves with only the finest of the eclectic selections that he or she cannot hear on any other full service FM Stereo oldies radio station.
