The Secret History of Rock Show 023: Coffee or Cream First? (YouTube Version)

We tend not to give radio that much thought, do we? But how much do you know about the thing you use so often? We’re going to spend some time on that subject—and I think you’ll find the history of radio rather interesting.  

For our look back this week, it’s 1987. We’ll also get to our usual dose of useless information, and I start the show with some legal troubles. Not me or you—but musicians who have ended up in strange legal situations, often not of their own doing. All that and more on today’s show.

Disclaimer:  Due to legal issues, we are not (yet) able to stream/podcast the shows. But we’ve got it covered: go here and click on the Secret History of Rock playlist (not the individual videos) that you would like to watch. We have every single episode available (complete with the appropriate music videos!). Click here for our Secret History Archive
