2/29/12: The Music and Mysticism of La Monte Young

Salt Lake City, UT – Wednesday, we're talking about one of the most enigmatic and fascinating characters in American music. La Monte Young was a pioneer of the minimalist movement and his work influenced artists like Terry Riley, Yoko Ono, The Velvet Underground and Brian Eno. So it may surprise you to hear that he was born in a log cabin in Idaho and worked the family farm on Utah Lake. BYU Professor Jeremy Grimshaw has written a biography and joins Doug to talk about Young's music and mysticism. (Rebroadcast)
