Soundtrack of Early Tacoma History

Tacoma historian Michael Sullivan was kind enough to sit down with me for a conversation about music’s role in Tacoma’s history, which I shared with my students taking my ‘Musical History of Tacoma’ course at UW Tacoma.

Our wide-ranging conversation begins with the arrival of the railroad, and extends to about 1950. Enjoy!
