What was your first concert? The first record you bought? What song or songs would you put on a “Soundtrack of Berkeley”?
For the Summer Music Issue, CALIFORNIA Magazine sent those questions and more to selected Cal alumni and other folks in the Berkeley community. Respondents include UC President Mark Yudof, Rolling Stone editor Jason Fine, Arhoolie Records founder Chirs Strachwitz, Mystery Train author Greil Marcus, New Yorker fiction editor Deborah Treisman, and Cal Performances director Matias Tarnopolsky. We’d love to hear your answers as well. Go here to read the results of our Summer 2011 Music Questionnaire.
