This year's edition of New York Magazine's Annual Yesteryear Issue, out this week, looks at a century of New York City music. You can read music critic Jody Rosen's essay on those 100 years, listen to his 100-song playlist, or listen to his and New York Magazine culture editor Lane Brown's appearances this week on WNYC's "Soundcheck." On Monday, Rosen talked about why the city has been the center of American music for so long. On Tuesday, he talked about Tin Pan Alley and why the 1920s is the New York City musical decade he's most nostalgic for. On Wednesday, Brown talked about Bob Dylan, salsa music, and the Velvet Underground. And yesterday, Jennifer Vineyard, who interviewed many of the artists in the issue, talked about CBGB and New York of the 1970s. Listen below:
