Plot Synopsis

In each half-hour episode of MIXTAPE, a rock & roll icon shares their favorite songs and their own personal mixtape with viewers. The rockers reveal meaning behind the music that helped to shape their lives and their legendary careers. Guests for Season 1 include:

Mick Jones & Kelly Hansen of Foreigner (Premieres Thursday, September 12, 2019 at 8:30pm ET/5:30pm PT): Since the mid-70s, Foreigner has been rocking across the world, earning #1 hits in multiple countries and a ranking as one of the world's best-selling bands of all time with more than 80 million records sold. On the series premiere of MIXTAPE, we're sitting down with one of the bands founding members, Mick Jones, and current vocalist, Kelly Hansen, who has been singing with the band since March of 2005.

Kevin Cronin & Dave Amato of REO Speedwagon (Premieres Thursday, September 19, 2019 at 8:30pm ET/5:30pm PT): You probably know REO Speedwagon because one of their 13 Top 40 hits or by seeing one of the hundreds of shows that they put on every single year. Two members of the band, vocalist Kevin Cronin and guitarist Dave Amato, will be joining us on MIXTAPE to share some personal stories about their time with REO. They'll talk about all of the songs that influenced them and their careers, including the moment Kevin Cronin first saw The Beatles on the Ed Sullivan show and realized THAT is exactly what he wanted to do.

Hear the songs that inspired to make the move from Australian pop group to American rockstar on September 26th!

Don McLean (Premieres Thursday, October 3, 2019 at 8:30pm ET/5:30pm PT): Is there a song that's more iconic than Don Mclean's "American Pie"?
