Jim and Greg discuss the state of net neutrality in 2017 and what the new Trump Administration could mean for musicians and music fans.
Greg and Jim discuss the history of Krautrock from its creation in the 1970s to major bands like Kraftwerk, Can and Faust. They’ll also explain what made the Krautrock sound so unique and influential.
