A rock’n'roll revival is coming up in Western Massachusetts. In the 1970s and early 80s, the Rusty Nail bar in Sunderland was the go-to place for live music in the area. This Sunday, some of the key players from that era are reuniting for a sold out gig at the Northampton Academy of Music. New England Public Radio’s Karen Brown invited three of them into our studio to talk about old times.

(Music in this piece: Mitch Shakour Band, Fat, John Lee Hooker, James Brown)
