Woody Guthrie wasn't a teacher, but by example he taught many a young musician what a powerful vehicle music can be for social, political, and personal change.

The Big Rumble! (Rock & Roll Radio). This playlist is a collection of my favorite Blues, R&B, Soul, Country, Doo-Wop, Folk music, Surf/Hot-rod-music & Rockabilly from the late 50s & early 60s.It's a playlist filled with wild, guitar infused tales of horror, hoodlums, homicides, high school, hooch & hot-rods, mixed with some surfboards, sinners and the super sultry Sweet Sixteen, the main themes of juvenile life in the era of Rock & Roll.

This playlist defines what I believe the Los Angeles party scene were listening to at the time. Enjoy.
