The Rock N Roll Archaeology Project
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?

Rock n Roll Librarian Reads Robbie Robertson: Testimony
< 1 day ago
Shelley and Christian discuss this captivating memoir, written over five years of reflection, where Robbie Robertson employs his unique storyteller’s voice to weave together the journey that led him to some of the most pivotal events in music history. He recounts the adventures of his half-Jewish, half-Mohawk upbringing on the Six Nations Indian Reserve and on the gritty streets of Toronto; his odyssey at sixteen to the Mississippi Delta, the fountainhead of American music; the wild early years on the road with rockabilly legend Ronnie Hawkins and The Hawks; his unexpected ties to the Cosa Nostra underworld; the gripping trial-by-fire “going electric” with Bob Dylan on his 1966 world tour, and their ensuing celebrated collaborations; the formation of the Band and the forging of their unique sound, culminating with history's most famous farewell concert, brought to life for all time in Martin Scorsese's great movie The Last Waltz.
