Home for the best alternative music from the 80’s

Episode #165 - Upbeat and awesome, it's what we do.

Welcome to August and another great chunk of music for you! More obscure gems, along with some well known favorites.Punk, goths and cast off rejects of our musical culture that made all the innovations and inroads and new kinds of music but got none of the glory or the money. To play in or form these DIY bands, experience wasn't needed, a desire to play was. Technical ability was a bonus, a hunger to perform a must.
