Laurel Canyon, L.A. Special

The Laurel Canyon area of Los Angeles has produced some of the most enduring music of all time. From Sonny & Cher to The Doors, The Eagles to Joni Mitchell – they all lived and recorded in this zip code. This evening music historian Harvey Kubernik takes us on a tour of the neighbourhood. Scott Walker's II is our classic album of the week, plus Roger takes us through a future classic - Americana by Neil Young. There's an hour of the best country with Alan Cackett, including a live studio session from Eve Sellis.
