Many thanks to SWLing Post contributor, Dave Porter, who writes:
After some 20 years I have rediscovered this radio song by the UK northern Irish singer Van Morrison.
“In The Days Before Rock’n’Roll”
There are some great TX station names in the song! It’s a full 8 minutes long….
Take a listen…
I don’t think I’ve heard this song in twenty years or more. Thank you for sharing this, Dave!
I’ll have to add Van Morrison to the list of radio influenced musicians we’ve featured in the past, including:
- Peter Gabriel
- Joe Strummer
- John Lennon
- Besnard Lakes
- Elliott Sharp
- Holger Czukay
- and, of course, our friend Madtone!
