Rural Ledge-ucation #20: Joe Strummer's Birthday

I set out to do a completely different show this morning. I laid out the tracks after recording this week's Big Brother Gossip Show and was all ready to follow that path when I discovered that today would have been Joe Strummer's 59th birthday. I initially scrambled to just throw in a song or two in tribute, but ultimately the entire hour became Strummer-related (although at time there are tenuous connections). I must give a special thanks to those in the realpunkradio chat that not only contributed ideas but were kind of enough to dropbox me a couple of missing tunes.
