New 500 Songs: Drugstore Rock ‘n’ Roll

Episode forty of A History of Rock Music in Five Hundred Songs looks at “Drugstore Rock ‘n’ Roll”, by Janis Martin, an early rockabilly classic by the woman known as “the Female Elvis”, musical gentrification, misogyny, and third acts in American lives.

Meanwhile today’s Patreon-only bonus episode is on “Fever” by Little Willie John, so for the first time we have a bonus episode on a record that’s far better known than the main podcast.
