In Soundcheck's “Year To Remember” series, we ask musicians, critics and other guests to talk about a single year that was monumental in music. And, we want to know - what musical years stand out in your memory? Send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
1955 was filled with landmark albums, classic songs – and the rise of rock ‘n’ roll. Will Friedwald, author of “A Biographical Guide to the Great Jazz and Pop Singers," joins us to talk about this "Year to Remember."
