Love Goes to Buildings on Fire - Will Hermes
New York City in the mid-1970s was a pretty grim place... bankrupt, soaring crime rates 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.
Will Hermes, author of 'Love Goes to Buildings on Fire' talks to Trevor Reekie about five years in New York that changed music forever.
