This week at MTPR we’re celebrating music and stories from 1971 to commemorate 50 years of National Public Radio. To celebrate this history, we’re joined today by UM College of Arts and Media professor Jeff Brandt. Perhaps best known for teaching UM’s most popular class, The History of Rock and Roll, Jeff lays down why 1971 was a pivotal year for the music industry and its reverb felt throughout America’s cultural & political spheres.
