Certain well-known musicians didn't have overnight success in the U.S.; they started out by languishing in unknown U.S. bands or else they had some success in UK bands while domestic record labels weren't interested enough yet to give them that big push. This weekend on "The American Bottom 45," it's a "Before We Became Famous" show!
The lineup includes The Hassles, The Tourists, Spooky Tooth, The Wind In The Willows, Jamestown Massacre, The Nazz, Meadow, Milkwood, Black Sheep, Sky(not the prog rock band), Pages, Gen X, Clover, Baby Grand, Blue Angel, and Shiloh. If you know your music well enough, then you will know who some of these famous musicians were!
Tune into the show on Saturday night 10/10 from 8 to 9 PM eastern at http://retroatticrareoldiesradio.com or search for The Retro Attic on Tunein.com, Nobex Radio, or ITunes Radio in their "Golden Oldies" category.
