Valentine's Day Show

This week's show was in honor of Valentine's Day. The first half consists of songs about the dark side of love, while the second half is decidedly more upbeat. The station's webcast server was down, which means I couldn't record the stream today. However, I can still provide the music sans my enlightening commentary (!!), early fades and cross-fades. It's just as well as I have a cold and kept clearing my throat during back-announcing!

You can download the podcast by request - leave me a comment.

Punk & Post-Punk Nuggets II

This week's show highlights the obscure, semi-obscure and only somewhat obscure post-punk tracks from my favorite period of music, 1976-86. Some of this stuff should be familiar to connoisseurs but there's plenty that you'd have to really dig to find. I forgot to mention that much of this comes from various artist compilations, singles compilations or limited CDRs directly from the artist. I found so much stuff that I'll have a follow-up show in a few weeks.
