Manage episode 350673030 series 3429404
Music, like water, is the lifeblood of civilization. In this episode, host Will Dailey guides you on a trip through space and time, taking you behind the scenes of the city’s most vibrant venues — all while tracing the stories of iconic rockers like Meat Puppets and Jimmy Eat World back through desert wanderers like Waylon Jennings and Lee Hazelwood, on back to the Hohokam, original settlers of the Valley of the Sun.
