The Ledge, Episode 44: It's a Jersey Thing

Last Wednesday evening, I settled down on my couch with a strong whiskey-coke and tuned to Comedy Central to catch the latest episode of South Park. Inspired by the hilarious send-up of Jersey Shore and The Real Housewives of New Jersey, I decided to go through my library to compile a show of nothing but Jersey-oriented band and tunes. There's no Springsteen, Skid Row, or Sinatra in this show (obviously), but two hours of great alternative, punk, and indie rock from the Garden State.

You can hear this show via the usual methods (realpunkradio, iTunes, or directly download it here.
