    Warner Music Group (WMG) today announced the launch of the Rock & Roll High School podcast hosted by two-time Grammy Award winning producer and Atlantic Records President of A&R, Pete Ganbarg. The series – which will see Ganbarg sit down with some of the most legendary figures in contemporary music – launches today, May 6th, with three episodes, featuring Grammy-winning composer, producer, arranger, and guitarist, Nile Rodgers; two-time Rock & Roll and Songwriters Hall of Fame inductee, Graham Nash; and Go-Go’s bassist and songwriter, Kathy Valentine. Following the premiere, new episodes will launch every other week.

    Ganbarg said: “It’s been an honor to sit down with each of these incredibly influential and uniquely talented individuals and really dive deep into their remarkable careers. I’m so excited to bring these conversations to music fans around the world. Everyone recognizes these superstars and their hits which have defined generations, but now we get to pull back the curtain and take a closer, more intimate look at the stories behind the music.”
