Elijah Wald - Words and Music - 2009


During his prolific career as music writer, Elijah Wald has published books about bluesman Robert Johnson, folk artist Dave Van Ronk, and Mexican drug ballads. He dropped by 'FUV to talk with host Nora Flaherty about his latest and easily most controversially-titled book, 'How the Beatles Destroyed Rock 'n' Roll: An Alternative History of American Popular Music' and did a little spinning as a guest DJ.
