    Journalist, podcaster, author and friend of the pod Andrew P Street returns to My Favorite Album to delve into the subject and process of his new book 'The Long and Winding Way to the Top: 50 or so songs that Made Australia'. Andrew takes us on a musical history of Australian culture since the birth of rock'n'roll, from JOK to AC/DC, Yothu Yindi to The Presets - telling the story of tectonic shifts in society, politics and more through the iconic songs that soundtracked those shifts and more.

    This episode should be a great entry point into the classic songs of Aussie rock and pop for our international listeners and might make some of our Australian listeners see some of these songs in a new light.
