8:15 Access All Areas: Love Goes To Buildings On Fire - Will Hermes

New York City in the mid-1970s was a pretty grim place. Bankrupt, crime rates soaring and burning buildings were frequent. At the same time musical history was being made. Punk rock and hip-hop. Disco and salsa. The loft jazz scene and the downtown modern minimalist classical composers were all creating a uniquely vibrant legacy.
