I'm So Lonesome I Could Cry: What Is The Loneliest Music Genre of All?

In this episode, we hear from experts:
Robbie Kowal, a DJ, who held the first silent disco in America.
Lisa Christiansen, a music journalist and reporter at the CBC.
Steve Wide, a radio announcer, in Melbourne, Australia and a fan of shoegaze.
