Unlocking Rock Music's History in Wolfgang's Vault
In the 1960s, rock music was pushing boundaries and concert promoter Bill Graham was at the heart of the action. Almost 40 years later, Graham’s archive of rock music memorabilia and live audio and video recordings was acquired by Northwestern University Trustee Bill Sagan, and Wolfgang’s Vault was founded. Called “the most important collection of rock memorabilia and recordings ever assembled in one business,” by The Wall Street Journal, Wolfgang’s Vault has grown to include a wealth of rock 'n' roll material, and is the owner of Daytrotter.com and Paste Magazine. Come hear from Sagan how the Vault was founded and how its contents are shared with the world.
