Live Ledge #295: Alphabet Street

The idea seemed simple. Just grab a song that begins with each letter of the alphabet. That shouldn't take too long, right?

Of course it's never so easy. When you have a large library, one tends to take a glimpse at all of the possibilities. That was certainly the case with tonight's show. What I thought would take an hour or so to put together ended up with me spending almost an entire afternoon with my iTunes library.

It ended up being a nice little mix of classics with little-herd longtime favorites. From the usual suspects to forgotten bands such as the Vertebrats. It's a fun little listen, and maybe you'll be refreshed on your alphabet by the time it's over!

Grab this via the usual sources, including iTunes and Stitcher, or...

5. The Kinks, Destroyer
6. Sex Pistols, EM…
