Brainwaves – December 6, 2016 – Neil Young does Americana and a trip down the coal mine

Brainwaves iconNeil Young covered classic Americana songs like Oh Susanna and Oh My Darling Clementine on his 2012 album “Americana.” Brainwaves plays a couple to start this week’s show. We’ll also take a trip down the coal mine with The Pretenders and Devo, and we’ll get pure with Sebadoh, The Who, The Teardrop Explodes and Pure Prairie League. Plus two soundalike song intros from Niv Kaikov and Visage. And let’s revisit the suburban town of Mill Valley from the 1970s with Miss Abrams and the Strawberry Point Fourth Grade Class.
