The Classic Summer Songs* Series on Inside The Rock Era

We hope you have enjoyed your summer, and Inside The Rock Era is doing our part with the Classic Summer Songs* series. 

With a brief break in our succession of spectacular music specials this Summer and Fall, it's a good time to hand out a handy guide to the series.  We didn't choose every song ever released in the summer; rather, the songs were selected because they were memorable songs released in the summertime.
