In a press release, former AllAccess publisher Joel Denver called the gathering “the best one yet.”
KROQ’s David Baum added, ” [It was] so wonderful seeing so many old buddies from the truly great days of KROQ when things were done that could not have been done at any other time in history.”

While mini-reunions of Radio’s KTYD and KROQ blasted, record labels A&M, MCA, EMI/Capitol Records, and many more met up and swapped stories.

Guest included: Val Garay, Michael Lloyd, Rick Frio, David Forman, Joel Denver, J.B.Brenner, Mike Bone, Diane Bennett, Mike Gormley, David Helfant, Jean Johnson, Toby Mamis, Tommy Nast, Marsha Costa, Roy Trakin, Steve Resnik.
