Hey! My next Sunday edition of Zoomer Crooners and Songbirds hones in on the sub genre of Garage Rock. American suburban teens were going nuts for RnB artists like Johnny Otis and Richard Berry. DIY, fuzzbox, tambourine and simple chords made it fun and easy for bored, irreverent kids in the late 50’s.

This garage phenomenon made it’s way to the UK in the early 60’s with bands like The Yardbirds, The Kinks, The Animals and Them to name a few. They were the precursor to the British Invasion which was a cross Atlantic counterculture swap starring The Beatles and The Stones who you may have heard of…

Tune in to hear the pioneers and the revivalists like the Brian Jonestown Massacre and The Gruesomes here on Zoomer Radio Sunday April 15th at 6pm and I am your host Lily Frost.
