SUNDAY syndicated program 8/1/10 (hr1)

"Sonic Boom! The History of Northwest Rock: From Louie Louie to Smells Like Teen Spirit" is an epic exploration of the Pacific Northwest's esteemed garage rock traditions, authored by Peter Blecha, Seattle's rock 'n' roll archaeologist. Blecha skillfully weaves together the untold tales behind the rise of the region's early dance halls, recording studios, radio stations, and 1950s rockabilly, RandB, and doo-wop groups. The result is a compelling saga about an isolated region of America that, against all odds, managed to win global acclaim by stubbornly making music merely to satisfy its own provincial pop needs.
