Rural Ledge-ucation #48: Alex Chilton

It was two years ago yesterday that we lost Alex Chilton, and The Ledge will continue to commemorate his career as long as the show exists. Today's show features primarily the quieter side of his career, with lots of covers by Americana artists, including Kelly Willis, Wilco, and John Doe. There's also some power pop, and lots of Chilton-related rarities, including a trio of tracks recorded at a 1987 Philadelphia concert.
If you get your download from iTunes, please leave a review in the iTunes store. This really helps the show get noticed. You can also have instant access to all shows by downloading the free Ledge app in either the Android Market or iTunes. The show is also up on Stitcher, or hit the download button below.
