One of the roots of Rockabilly and Rock 'N' Roll started in Clovis, New Mexico with Norman Petty. Petty recorded such greats as Buddy Holly, Roy Orbison, Waylon Jennings and The Fireballs. Follow along as the Clovis/Curry County Chamber of Commerce members rebuild, restore, and put into operation original high fidelity analog equipment that was used in that period. The analog/digital Clovis Sounds Studios is being built in the Norman and Vi Petty Rock 'N' Roll Museum in the heart of the eastern New Mexico community. This Clovis Connections Podcast describes the journey, history, people, equipment, and the connections to the roots of Rock 'N' Roll.
