ROCK & ROLL IN KENNEDY'S AMERICA A Cultural History of the Early 1960s

by | Read by Chris Abernathy

History • 13.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2022

With his appealing pitch and tempo patterns, narrator Chris Abernathy provides this engaging audiobook with the perfect balance of documentary clarity and vocal pizzazz. His calm tone and relaxed pacing let the author's diligent research and writing shine. Kennedy was elected the same year the first Baby Boomers became adolescents and took in the dramatic changes in the way Americans viewed race, gender, politics, and traditional authority. Music was part of that volatility as Elvis, Motown, surf music, and girl groups stoked the fires of independence and romantic longing. With its finely woven tapestry of interviews with music notables and insights about 1960s culture, this well-researched audio will be immensely satisfying to fans of history and pop music who lived through those pivotal years.
