American roots music, culture, and vintage lifestyle.
On this week’s Roadhouse:
AM GOLD: A Back To School radio special for old kids suffering from acute Arrested Development, and my ode to wasted youth of the 1970’s.
This is about hit records and a healthy nostalgia for bubble-gum lip gloss, bean-bag chairs, Creem magazine, and listening to AM radio in your room while ignoring your parents. Music from 1970-1976 including dumb rock, bubblegum pop, crossover soul, and lots of guilty pleasures. Also, ridiculous novelty songs, fads, and “cut-in” records. It was the golden-age of pop-rock music.
So locate your favorite pair of cut-offs, grab your pocket comb, and drive around suburban neighborhoods with windows down and the stereos up! It’s still summer, and these songs don’t matter!
