1977 – The Year Punk Broke

I came across the show below from Sound Opinions on Punk music. Our library has a whole bunch of stuff on punk (see Library sources on punk). This looked like something that students may find interesting as they are exploring music and pop culture history.

Sound Opinions Presents: 1977 – The Year Punk Broke
Description: In this FREE one-hour program, Sound Opinions marks the 35th anniversary of one of the most significant years in rock and roll history. 1977’s punk explosion energized young musicians, scandalized their parents, and changed the music industry forever. Hosts Jim DeRogatis and Greg Kot introduce listeners to the personalities, bands, and landmark records of this game-changing year, from The Ramones’ “Rocket to Russia,” to The Talking Heads’ “77,” to the Sex Pistols’ “Never Mind the Bollocks.”
