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!

Playback The Roadhouse at kexp.org archives. Now also on mixcoud: edited with no mics breaks or interruptions.
