LIve Ledge #327: More Songs From 1978

Last month I put together a show that featured nothing but music from my favorite year of rock and roll. 1978 was such an easy theme, and it just couldn't be contained in one episode. In fact, thanks to some further research over the last few weeks there are plans to have up to five shows of tracks celebrating their 40th anniversaries.

The most important record of this show is undoubtedly the second Clash album. "Give 'Em Enough Rope" came out in November 1978, and was the first "punk" record I bought when the week it was released. I've loved it ever since, and it was hard to pick three songs to represent it on tonight's show. As a bonus, I threw in "Clash City Rockers", one of their single releases from that year.

You can find this show at almost any podcast site, including iTunes and Stitcher. Or...
