Tonight we're going to start what I hope will be another regular weekend feature: Newstalgia Pop Chronicles. The idea came about largely as the result of discovering a huge stash of recorded interviews and interview programs in the vault, pretty much untouched the last twenty years. They comprise primarily of figures from the Pop music world (including Rock, Jazz, Folk and just about everything in between) talking about their lives and their work. The sources run the gamut but the main emphasis is on our popular culture. Some people will be very familiar and others will probably need reminding as to who they are and what their contributions were. Some have long since left the scene while others are caught at the very beginnings of their careers. But all of it represents a slice of cultural history and hopefully some enjoyable weekend listening and a break from Weekend talk shows (even for a few minutes).

So tonight we're starting off with a weekly series produced by the BBC called Rock Capsule. This one is for the week of July 3-9, 1978 and features interviews with David Gilmour, Phil Lynott, Fee Waybill and Steve Hackett.

As always, if you like it we'll keep it going. It should be interesting.
