Now and Then host Kathy Geary (Saturdays at 3 p.m.) brings listeners “Anything but Square” on September 7. Rock and Roll was built on a solid four four back beat, one TWO three FOUR, beginning in the 50’s and forming the foundation of rock music by the Beatles and Stones. But sometimes it’s anything but square, with odd time signatures, in fives and sevens, showing up in songs you’d least expect from Steve Winwood or John Lennon. And that’s not all.  Curious? Tune in to find out more.
