On The Strip Radio present The Band – The Radio Special, featuring Robbie Robertson, with an in-depth look at one of rock music’s most influential groups of all time and their 1971 Academy of Music live performance in New York City. Host Mike Etchart brings you an exclusive in-depth interview with The Band co-founder and songwriter Robbie Robertson. In the interview, Robbie covers the behind-the-scenes history and dynamics of the group, all the way from their roots in rockabilly with legend Ronnie Hawkins backing band, to their years playing with Bob Dylan, and to their own rise to fame as one of the most celebrated and iconic groups of their time. He shares the inspiration and stories of some of their best known songs, like “The Weight”, “The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down” and many others. Robbie also discusses the original influences of The Band and their music and why their sound continues to influence contemporary groups like Mumford & Sons and The Lumineers.
