"Rare & Scratchy Rock 'N Roll #_035 Celebrates "Earth Day"

-- Songs About The Environment --

This episode commemorates the "Earth Day" rock and pop music connection.

"Earth Day "was founded by United States Senator Gaylord Nelson as an environmental teach-in that took place on April 22nd, 1970. And it’s been celebrated annually around the world ever since.

We’re doing our part here at "Rare & Scratchy Rock ‘N Roll." Our very own EPA – environmental platter administration – has assembled a list of 40 ecologically sound songs that have been recycled from our renowned “groove yard” audio archive.

We’ll count them down for you. Marvin Gaye, John Denver, Bob Dylan, John Mellencamp, Metallica, the Talking Heads, the Beach Boys, Johnny Cash, Cat Stevens, the Pretenders, Peter Gabriel, Joni Mitchell, the Kinks, the Eagles, the Beatles, the Yardbirds, the Byrds, and many others performed environmentally-friendly refrains and bio-degradable ballads. And you’ll hear about them here on this pollution-free podcast – all approved by Mother Nature.
