57 on '57

This being Episode # 57, I thought it would be fun to revisit '57 -- as in the year 1957. With the loss of Little Richard recently, virtually all of the early pioneers of Rock 'n' Roll are gone now, so let's take a look back at the music and the musicians behind rock's first big year.

This episode was also inspired by the book "The History Of Rock & Roll, Volume 1" by Ed Ward. Most of the research, facts & figures came from this excellent book, and I highly recommend it. You can find it here:

There's also an audiobook version available.
