Live Ledge #48: 1987

The great year of 1987 was literally almost a half-lifetime away, and I was living the life. Working the record store by day and a dance club by night, it was my last year with no financial or family obligations. Yes, it was a decadent year that was light on sleep but high on fun.
Somehow I found still found time to do a radio show on KAUR, and tonight's Live Ledge is basically a "best of" the new release rack from the station. Everything in the playlist has a 1987 release date, and the tunes meander between jangle-pop, garage, indie, noise, and punk.

too cool Scott... a decadent year for me as well, was bouncing in the Boathouse in Norfolk, VA, where I got to meet many of my music heroes, including Paul W & Tommy S after a show (they came on our boat for a drink or 2)... I think I own just about everything on this list! Cheers, theotherScottonLastfm
