Malcolm McLaren and The Great Juke Box Racket - BBC Radio Documentary - cheops
Malcolm McLaren takes listeners on a journey through the history of rock'n'roll and organised crime in which the jukebox plays a pivotal role.
Set in the sleazy, low-lit underworld of the mob in post war America, Malcolm McLaren exposes how organised crime collaborated with the un-liberated South and the black community to create the three minute up-tempo Rock 'n' Roll pop song.
The story and its journey shows how the criminal mind was central and pivotal to selling and creating an outlaw culture which gripped the young generation who hungrily adopted its style - sex and subversion, as their very own.
This is the alternative history of Rock 'n' Roll.
