We Go Back to 1977 on the SERIES PREMIERE of A Year In Music

It was a year of triumph and tragedy for the music industry!

We’re kicking off our brand new series, A Year In Music, with a deep dive into the year 1977. From the warm and sunny sounds of Los Angeles to the dark and disgruntled sounds of New York City, pop music exploded into spectacular new directions during the year. While technology was rising in California studios, giving us the beautiful multi- tracked vocal harmonies of “Hotel California” and Fleetwood Mac’s Rumours, riots, economic crisis, and a brutal heatwave led to the second rising of punk music from The Ramones, Talking Heads, The Clash, and Sex Pistols in New York City. Throughout 1977, Pink Floyd’s iconic pig was just taking flight, the legendary Studio 54 had opened its doors, and Meatlof was breaking through the scene with Bat Out Of Hell. We also were hit with the tragic news of The King, Elvis Presley’s death and the plane crash that killed three members of Lynyrd Skynyrd. Learn more about the historical events and the music that changed the world on A Year In Music: 1977 this SUNDAY at 9/8c!
