Episode 17: Suckin’ Down a Chili Dog Outside the Tastee Freeze

Written by on March 26, 2017

 

This week: music about, relating to, or evocative of HIGH SCHOOL, U.S.A. Mid-century artifacts, earnest teen ballads, and kooky novelties bump up against sad-boy guitar music from latter days. Note: there is not a single song in this show that I actually listened to in high school. Kooky!

 

17 year old Neil Young with The Squires, Winnipeg, 1963.
