The Rock Stop

Episode 1: Grunge


Rock music has been around for a while and it evolves as every group of new musicians pick up guitars or drumsticks, learn to play and either copy the people they grew up listening to, or develop their own sounds, writing lyrics that reflect the full range of backgrounds and beliefs of those drawn to this musical style.


Many of us enjoy rock music, have our favorite bands and know a bit about where they come from. But the Rock Stop aims to take listeners a bit further, lifting the lid on the key individuals and musical highlights of a different sub-genre of rock in each episode, then talking to people who just enjoy or are experts in the sub-genre.


Minerva is a singer, songwriter and rock musician based in London, who grew up listening to her dad’s collection of rock music and listening to his anecdotes about bands. She is hoping to share some of her love of rock music with the audience as they go on a tour of all things rock.
