Longtime music critic Brett Milano's new book, The Sound of Our Town: A History of Boston Rock & Roll, surveys 50 years of Beantown's popular music. "Brett's book is something this city has needed," a former program director for local radio station WBCN tells the Globe. "As a whole scene, maybe [Boston] didn't have the national impact of some other towns, but take Mission of Burma or the Pixies. Look how many people have said those bands are an influence. Sometimes we don't get the recognition we deserve."
