Episode 15 - More than Motown, The Private Press Sound of Michigan


Our friend Rodney Pate sits in with us on this episode to talk about Michigan area bands from the ‘60s and ‘70s. Rod is a DJ and collector from Ann Arbor Michigan, and has been focusing on collecting local private press records. He also has his own radio show, Right On Radio at the long running freeform radio station WCBN based at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor, where he plays an all-analog show of obscure psychedelia and conducts interviews with artists from the area. For this episode, Rod has selected some of the lesser-known bands he has encountered over the years and it’s going to be a varied show - ranging from heavy psych and garage to real people music and folk.
