All IN - 5/19/20 - 'Doctor Rock' Pioneers Career In Music History


Glenn Gass has had a legendary career in rock 'n' roll. Not by selling out stadiums, but by filling up lecture halls. The Indiana University professor, known as “Doctor Rock,” created the first rock history course to be offered at the school. The class lasted decades, introducing over 60,000 students to the music that defined a generation.

As Gass heads into retirement, we talk to him about his trailblazing career and the power of music in turbulent times. 

Produced by Maggie Gelon.
