The Ledge, Episode 52: Happy Birthday, Keith Richards!

Exactly one year ago, I sat down in front of my laptop with my brand new Snowball microphone and produced my very first episode of The Ledge. Of course, it was a complete shambolic mess, which sadly is my most-downloaded episode to date, but it started me on this little project that has consumed most of my free time over the last twelve months. Thank you to those who have listened to my obscure music choices and my inane banter.

But this episode is also noteworthy as Keith Richards turns 67 years old this Saturday. I've gathered together some of my favorite Stones covers, along with a couple of Stones originals, in this two hour celebration of the man who is the epitome of rock 'n' roll, both in musical terms but also in lifestyle. As always, subscribe via iTunes, listen to realpunkradio this Friday at 5 pm central time, or download it here.
