How Music Changed

    As we approach the end of our ‘Nuggets’ series, it just seems to confirm our reasoning that ‘Nuggets’ represents an incredibly important and underrated era in music history.

    This show is chock full of awesome yet obscure tunes, all aimed at trying to permanently change youth culture. It failed at its goal to turn all of us on, but that only serves to magnify its ultimate role in our culture. Nuggets represents a trend that almost changed our lives, and the path of goodies that it left behind are still exciting, fun, and intoxicating. Of all the Nuggets shows we’ve done (this is #34), this has been my favorite.

    Featured tracks include:
