“… and there’s truly no justice if ‘Whatever Happened to Main Street’ doesn’t become a classic.” A.Scott Galloway, Music Journalist
Whatever happened to Main Street?
Singer/songwriter Gary Gene Bolton was born and raised in Pittsburg, Kansas.
In this original composition, Gary reminisces about life growing up in rural America when Main Street was the hub of the community, and where one’s word was always good.
He expresses his concern about big corporations and big government gaining more and more power at the expense of family owned businesses, individualism and creativity.
This song is a battle cry for the preservation of the traditional American values of freedom, dignity and integrity.
Here, Laurel Erickson and her guests discuss the relevance of Gary’s poignant song to today’s economic and social situation.
