Growing up with Rock ’n Roll: Blasts from the Past 

Stephen discovered Rhythm & Blues music while listening on his first transistor radio to Jocko’s “Rocket Ship Show.” Suddenly one night, there was Alan Freed and his “Moondog” radio show. Stephen was hooked on Rock ’n Roll for the rest of his life. This lecture will review the early days of Rock ’n Roll and its effect on music, teenage social life, and social mores. It was the sound track of his generation.  He is the drummer in the Rockland-based band “Grandpa.” Join him for some music and share your own memories.
