Live Ledge #358: 1983 (Part 2)

A few months ago, I put together a show celebating the year 1983, knowing I would have to do a second show at some point during the year to get through all of the grat music from that year. I have to admit that I sort of blew it off until I was cleaning up folders on my laptop and found the folder that contained the songs I didn't play back in July.

Tonight's show may be a sequel but it's every big as entertaining as the first one. There's some college rock from the likes of New Order, Lord of the New Church and The Three O'Clock. There's great Minneapolis rock from Curtiss A and other Twin/Tone releases. And there's a ton of great punk rock - Minor Threat, Bad Brains, D.I. Circle Jerks, and so many others.

As always, I hope everybody discovers a band or two they've never heard before! You can find this show at almost any podcast site, including iTunes and Stitcher. To listen to part one, search those services for Live Ledge #342 or click this link. For a direct download of tonight's show...
