Veteran award-winning producer Joe Bevilacqua hosts this hour-long program outlining the history of Threadgill’s and Armadillo World Headquarters, their contribution to the birth of the Austin music scene, and their influence on the Nashville sound and country rock.
“This program offers a soup to nuts history of
Austin’s growth into the live music Mecca that it’s become today. The show is
more than just contemporary talking heads and music—it features an amazing
collection of archival interviews and recordings (including tape of some
never-before-heard early Janis Joplin performances, which should qualify as an
authentic archival treasure). The production is well put-together, flowing
smoothly between many different elements.”—Eric Nuzum, NPR’s vice president of programming Download and start listening now!
