Mark Deming – Michigan’s Woodstock: The 1970 Goose Lake International Music Festival: The Greatest Show You’ve Never Heard of
In the summer of 1970, over 200,000 rock ‘n’ roll fans made their way to Goose Lake just outside Jackson, Michigan for the biggest rock festival ever held in the Midwest. It featured nearly all the major Michigan acts of the day, including the Stooges, the MC5, SRC, the Up, Brownsville Station, and Mitch Ryder and Detroit, as well as Rod Stewart and the Faces, Joe Cocker, the James Gang, Mountain, Chicago, Jethro Tull, and the Flying Burrito Brothers. The festival made headlines, angered the governor, and had local homeowners up in arms. So how come you’ve never heard of it? Music writer Mark Deming discusses the strange but true story of the biggest weekend in Michigan’s musical history.

Martin talks to award-winning music writer Holly George-Warren about her new biography of Alex Chilton, A Man Called Destruction. A thoroughly researched account of the critically-acclaimed singer-songwriter's life and musical career, the book covers Chilton's time in the Box Tops, in Big Star, and eventually becoming an alternative and indie rock icon who influenced bands like Wilco, R. E. M., the Replacements and Yo La Tengo. George-Warren's book is also the story of the changes in Rock & Roll over the past forty years -- from the golden days of AM radio singles and Southern soul; to albums created as personal artistic statements; to the industry changes wrought by indie rock in the 80s, 90s and into the 21st century.
