Plot Synopsis

A YEAR IN MUSIC is a half-hour series that features music experts from all genres and parts of the industry exploring the legendary sounds that defined the '60s, '70s, and '80s. Former MTV VJs Downtown Julie Brown and Matt Pinfield, rock superstar Don Felder, and stand up comedy legend Tommy Chong are the pop culture icons who guide viewers through some of the most pivotal years in music across these three decades -- from the final glory days of classic crooners like Frank Sinatra, to the Peace & Love Movement of 1969, to the rise of heavy metal in 1975 thanks to Led Zeppelin, and the importance of the music video. In each 30-minute episode, one of the hosts explores the impact and influence that bands, songs, pop culture, and politics had on the era. Episodes include:

1977 (Premieres Sunday, July 7, 2019 at 9pm ET/6pm PT): Hosted by Downtown Julie Brown. From the warm and sunny sounds of Los Angeles to the dark and disgruntled sounds of New York City, pop music exploded into spectacular new directions during the year. While technology was rising in California studios, giving us the beautiful multi-tracked vocal harmonies of "Hotel California" and Fleetwood Mac's Rumours, riots, economic crisis, and a brutal heatwave led to the second rising of punk music from The Ramones, Talking Heads, The Clash, and Sex Pistols in New York City. Throughout 1977, Pink Floyd's iconic pig was just taking flight, the legendary Studio 54 had opened its doors, and Meatlof was breaking through the scene with Bat Out Of Hell. Music fans also were hit with the tragic news of The King, Elvis Presley's death and the plane crash that killed three members of Lynyrd Skynyrd.
