Make More Noise 55 (Laurel Canyon Edition)

Laurel Canyon is a comparatively secluded neighborhood in the hills north of Hollywood full of verdant nooks and crannies. It's stunningly beautiful, and somehow very removed from the hustle and bustle of Los Angeles. In the mid 1960s it became a hotbed for creative collaboration. Emerging musical talents met, exchanged ideas, and became friends, resulting in a number of landmark bands from the era including Buffalo Springfield, Love, and Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young. Though it's renowned may have faded a bit since the 1970s, the area remains a have for musicians with folk tendencies, who carry on the canyon's musical traditions. Come listen to the history of Laurel Canyon beginning with The Modern Folk Quarter in 1963 and ending with some contemporary artists, like Johnathan Wilson in this special edition of Make More Noise. Brought to you by and the University of Southern California.
