The Jewel Case: Glitter And Glam (02.21.19)


All you pretty things will want to join us as your weekly musical multivitamin takes a look at GLITTER AND GLAM, the music that came busting through the door on sparkly platform boots in the early 70s and shook up what was becoming an increasingly staid and navel-gazing world of Rock & Roll with a healthy dose of camp, theatre, and androgyny. We'll be spinning some familiar favorites, some lesser-known goodies, and a couple tracks that influenced the whole thing. Let all the children boogie.
