A new exhibit called The Science Of Rock has premiered in Kansas City, so I asked Alan Cross (Director Of Content for the exhibit) to join me on KTRS today to discuss it. We talked about how music delivery systems have been changed by technology, and how the music itself has been affected through the years. He told stories about the accidental invention of the fuzz pedal for guitarists, and how the Beatles are responsibility for the development of CAT scans. He also explained what’s pushing the envelope of musical science and technology going forward.
