Live Ledge #24: Nostalgia

The extreme heat and humidity of the past week has made me reminisce about the old days...and by old days I mean late 70's/early 80's. It was a time when everything once again seemed possible in rock 'n' roll; a time when bands were again rushing into the studio to create three-minute pop songs that were rush-released to a small crowd of fans all over the world.
Yeah, it didn't quite turn out as expected, and it wasn't really until Nirvana's Nevermind album in '91 that the type of music I loved became mainstream. Oh well, the songs from that era are still the soundtrack of my life, and fill the majority of tonight's playlist. Download it via the usual methods (iTunes, Stitcher, etc.) or nab a direct download here.
