SETTING THE RECORD STRAIGHT: THE MUSIC AND CAREERS OF RECORDING ARTISTS FROM THE 1950’s AND EARLY 1960’s IN THEIR OWN WORDS
Based on personal interviews with 100 top recording artists from the 1950s and 1960s, author Anthony Musso corrects longtime inaccuracies and myths that have plagued the artists’ biographies for more than 50 years. The artists describe milestone experiences and performances on shows such as Ed Sullivan and American Bandstand, as well as the early rock and roll bus tours and package concerts at the Brooklyn Fox Theater, Palisades Amusement Park, and the Apollo Theater in Harlem, NY. Startling accounts and backstage banter are featured in his two-volume book Setting the Record Straight.

THE HUDSON VALLEY DURING THE ICE AGE
Take an armchair tour of the Hudson Valley at the end of the last ice age. You will see obvious features (the Hudson River itself) and nonobvious features (such as drowned lands and drumlins) through the magic of Google Earth. The glaciers are long gone, but their impact is still felt.
