This music history blog celebrates studio songcraft while also serving as a spotlight that draws attention to deserving artists — as well as songwriters, musicians, producers, engineers, arrangers, label owners, and the like — who have not received their proper historical recognition.  A vehicle for “pop music social justice,” Zero to 180 also functions as a forum for examining the “old fogie roots of modern rock” in all its facets.
