The Ledge #549: New Releases

I'm sure plenty of veteran Ledge listeners are confused right now. A new release episode at the end of the month? Aren't those shows scheduled for the first Friday of the month? What's going on here?

Well, here's the deal. I've come up with a sub-theme for 2023. This will be a yearlong theme that will affect every single show, and I have a main theme set up to introduce this next week. So 30 hours before 2023 begins, I started broadcasting the first 2023 new release episode as my final episode of 2022. Make sense?

There's really not much difference between airing it now and in seven days. Yes, there would inevitably be a few new tunes worthy of inclusions, but I'll make sure the February episode is jam-packed. And, honestly, I was really excited to present to everybody a bunch of tracks from a brand new Replacements tribute album. Graduate Unskilled - Un Tributo ai Replacements, which can be found at this bandcamp site , is an intriguing nineteen track collection of Replacements cover tunes that I'm sure my Ledge listeners will love.

Along side those tunes, there's the usual mix of new power pop, garage, punk and indie rock tunes. As usual, there's a set devoted to our friends at Rum Bar Records. There's even a track from a concept record devoted to an old Scooby Do episode!

I would love it if every listener bought at least one record I played on either of these shows. These great artists deserve to be compensated for their hard work, and every purchase surely helps not only pay their bills but fund their next set of wonderful songs. And if you buy these records directly from the artist or label, please let them know you heard these tunes on The Ledge! Let them know who is giving them promotion! You can find this show at almost any podcast site, including iTunes and Stitcher...or
