#70 – The Music of Saturday Night Live


This week we turn our attention to one of the greatest television institutions in history — SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE — and its amazing musical legacy. We talk about some of our favorite musical performances ever (and some of the worst, too), what artists the show introduced us to that became favorites, the performances that changed our minds (for good or for ill) about an artist, some of the controversies over the decades, and some of our favorite musical skits and impressions. 

After that we do our Picks of the Week, including new releases by The Pretenders, Sparks, Beach House, Lloyd Cole, and the podcast Wiser Than Me, and more. 

We hope you enjoyed our look back at 48 years of SNL! We’d love to hear your feedback! What are your favorite performances, favorite skits, artists you were introduced to, etc. Drop us a line at modernmusicology1@gmail.com or leave a comment wherever you find our episode!
