Live Ledge #112: Love Is The Law

Who would have guessed that an almost-forgotten (but not by me) track by The Suburbs would become an anthem of sorts almost thirty years later? It's pretty amazing that as Minnesota's Marriage Equality bill started to gain traction that this wonderful song received a bit of the spotlight.
Tonight's show celebrates the passing of that bill, with nothing but songs and/or artists that express individuality. There's quite a few songs one would expect in such a show, but there are admittedly others whose connection probably only exists in my mind. Even without the message, it's a fun two hours that jumps around from genre to genre.
Grab this, as always, in the iTunes store, stream it via Stitcher, or...
