Strummer Show 2011!
image from Strummerville
Last Friday 12/23/11 was my 10th annual celebration of Joe Strummer on KALX, 1 day after the 9th anniversary of his death on 12/22/02. The show ran from 3pm to 9pm and is available as 2 3 hour mp3s below. No repeats!
Jesse Luscious was on the air in 2002 when the news of Strummer's death became known, and immediately began what's now an annual celebration of his music, from the 101ers to the Clash to the Latino Rockabilly War to the Mescaleros, with some surprising stops along the way (Janie Jones & the Lash, Ellen Foley, & the Pogues, to name just a few).
SPECIAL THANKS TO KALX DJS ZAIN, THE BERKSTER, CUPPA JOE & RUBBERBAND GIRL for their help!
The show will be available for a limited time only at the links below!
