Live Ledge #114: 1983

It's a show that I've been planning all year, and tonight seemed to be the perfect night for it. Thirty years ago, I was a sophomore at Augustana College, and was coming in to my own as a college radio DJ. Tonight's show celebrates much of that music I played during that year, along with other 1983 releases that I discovered in subsequent years. Besides the usual suspects (Husker Du, Replacements, Violent Femmes, R.E.M.), there are sets that celebrate various college rock sub-genres and record labels.
