The Ledge #556: More Miscellany

This week's show is once again a mix of old and new. There's quite a few brand new releases highlighted, accompanied by quite a few records that I've found myself playing in my free time. 

Which leads me to a question to my lovely listeners. For as long as I've done the show, the presence of "themes" has been a constant. Honestly, that's how my brain works best for picking music. It gives me a reason to air a tune. Even the monthly new release episode is basically a theme that's just like shows based on certain years or terms.

Lately, I have sort of abandoned the theme and played these kinds of old/new mixes. Part of this is that due to the fact that I now report a top ten playlist every week to the Radio Indie Alliance. I know I can submit any ten tracks I play but I've been paying even more attention to new music than usual.

So this is what I want to find out from you guys. Do you like these freeform type of broadcasts or should I revert back to having a weekly theme? The themes aren't going away entirely, no matter what anybody says. But should they become a monthly occurrence just like the new release show? Let me know by commenting on this post, or contacting me on the various social media platforms. Oh, and I need ideas on what to title these shows!

As for this week's edition of the "52 Weeks of Teenage Kicks", I've got a nice little surprise from Rum Bar Records artist Jenny Dee & The Deelinquents. Jenny's version came out in 2013 as the b-side to her single, "Getaway", and the 50s pop/rock feel is a refreshing take on the punk classic. Thank you Jenny Dee!!!
