Every once in a while you come across a fresh idea that begs to become a radio show.

A story that comes alive when you add music.

So..last week I came across the story  from the NY Times magazine by Chuck Klosterman.

Entitled – Which rock star will historians of the future remember?   (Click link to read article)

300 years from now – when students in classes won’t even know what rock was,  will be shown a photo or hologram of an artist that represents what rock was, who will that artist be?

Klosterman takes us through the reasoning..

”Time fades everything but the essence of history..”

He considers The Beatles and all that they gave music.

He suggests that historians and critics  find it easier to pick a person rather than a group. It’s easier to tell the story.

Thus, Elvis Presley and Bob Dylan come into the spotlight.

bob-dylan

Elvis was a Star but didn’t write his own music.  Dylan wrote everything but had a less than stellar voice.

The Stones get a mention (no Zep. Little Richard. Fats. Jerry lee)

Hunterj_is_a_Question_markSo…WHO IS  in the picture  the teacher hold up to represent the whole of rock and roll.

 

That’s what we’ll deal with musically on today Stew – right at 6PM Mtn..

In the meantime..check out the playlist. We have some rock to play for you.

Thanks tdm
