Acoustic Storm



Award-winning radio producer Jeff Parets created an original program of acoustic-based rock that performs especially well on Classic Rock, Classic Hits and Adult Hits formats. THE BEST VARIETY OF ACOUSTIC ROCK!    Now, after Jeff’s passing, his long-time partner Audrey Parets has taken over the producing and hosting roles and continues in Jeff’s tradition.

The Acoustic Storm has always delivered a well-paced and musically-balanced program featuring a unique blend of acoustic-based hits and album tracks from familiar and sometimes overlooked artists.  With an emphasis on acoustic guitar-driven songs, Audrey presents the best variety of acoustic-rock each week, including rarely-heard "unplugged" recordings of classic tunes in their purest form.

The Acoustic Storm’s texture is ideal for weekend programming, while the acoustic and unplugged versions refresh and support the classic hits you depend upon throughout the week.

The Acoustic Storm is often topical, including timely news and background information on artists.  When George Harrison passed away, an entire program was dedicated to his life and music.

The Acoustic Storm frequently incorporates creative themes through music; during Oscar week, acoustic-rock from the movies is featured.  Theme-related acoustic tunes are also played to honor important dates in rock history and celebrate holidays (including An Acoustic Storm Christmas).

The Acoustic Storm draws upon the depth and heritage of the classic hits of rock to present one-of-a-kind programming that cultivates listener loyalty.


The Acoustic Storm spotlights a different artist every week with bio information, sound bites and music in “The Eye of The Acoustic Storm.”  This popular segment, scheduled once each hour, offers another local sponsorship opportunity.  Artists that have been featured in “The Eye” include The Stones, Paul McCartney, CCR, Van Morrison and Heart, among others.


The Acoustic Storm is a proven ratings winner and “cume magnet” with a ten year record of success! The show has risen to the top ranks of Persons 25-54, and has become a staple for pro-active listeners who consider The Acoustic Storm “appointment radio” every weekend.

The Acoustic Storm is available on a barter basis, in both three-hour and two-hour formats. Contact USRN below - or visit for more info.
