About This Show
The Rock And Roll Archaeology Project is, first and foremost, a community of Rock And Roll fans. Using our podcast, our website and blog, and of course, social media, we hope to provide a virtual town hall for Rock fans to meet and have great discussions about the history and impact of Rock And Roll.
The Music. The People. The Culture. The Technology. Any other topics or aspects that may come up.
Our central question, our starting point is: How does Rock And Roll affect the larger society, and how does the larger society affect Rock And Roll?
