Live Ledge #102: Songs For Slim

Earlier this week, The Replacements released their first recordings in over 20 years (outside of a couple of bonus tracks in 2006). What brought them together, though, is a tragedy. Just over a year ago, former Replacements guitarist Slim Dunlap had a massive right brain stroke which has left him likely needing 24-hour care for the rest of his life. 
Tonight's show not only airs the entire Songs For Slim EP, but also the original versions of the five songs. Rounding out the show are a few other 'mats oddities, plus songs from other artists that will be participating in the monthly Songs For Slim 7" releases.
