Jan 29 th, Strombo Show CBCRadio2

January 29,2012

We visit the past, present and future of music tonight. With The Magnificent 7, we rifle through the best of today's music from the Darcys' reinterpretation of Steely Dan's classic 'Aja' to Plants and Animals latest. George talks to Alan Cross - the voice of the History of New Music, about his perception of the music industry and the direction that its going. We celebrate the flower child generation by tripping on a psychedelic musical journey into the sounds of the Hippie-Era before getting horizontal in the Blues Big Lie down.
