This Friday, October 2 at Noon ET the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum will be live-streaming from KLRU-TV’s Austin City Limits studio in Austin, Texas.
The Rock Hall is officially designating the ACL studio as an historic rock and roll site as a part of the Museum’s Landmark Series. The studio is the home of the groundbreaking television series that uniquely represents more than three decades of some of rock and roll’s most influential artists and their performances – from iconic musicians to cutting-edge talent. It’s one of the most significant archives that documents the American culture and shares the Rock Hall’s mission of collecting, preserving and interpreting the rock and roll story.
Go behind the scenes of Austin City Limits with the people who create the show and the artists who bring it to life. Two once-in-a-lifetime discussions will be facilitated by Dr. Lauren Onkey, vice president of education and public programs at the Rock Hall:
