The Roots of Rock and Roll: Pt. 1  

Take a fascinating, informative and entertaining journey with Bay Area broadcaster John Jensen as we seek the roots of rock. You’ll hear great music, see rare film and video clips while examining the legacies of the pioneers who contributed greatly to this popular music genre. You’ll hear how Rhythm and Blues, Gospel, and Country intersected during that first decade and became the bedrock of Rock n’ Roll. Along the way we’ll hear the musicians, the singers, the guy and girl groups, the personal stories and the influence of radio, television and big business. You’ll play 50s rock trivia, hear rare studio sessions and see how the music impacted American culture during those early days.
