Before ’75 Part II: Blank Generation

Before ’75 Part II: Blank Generation (#237) (846)

In this History Lesson (originally aired on 10 September 2011), we offer some clips from some music documentaries, that focus on how all this wonderful music got started. This version is a little re-vamped from the original broadcast, for Jungle Room Listeners.

This began last week! Feel free to listen to them as a four hour “documentary.”

Enjoy!
