  • The Ledge #564: 1988

    Was 1988 a good year? Well…it wasn’t if you followed mainstream culture. But that’s a given in each and every year. If you didn’t participate in that sort of nonsense, 1988 was a fabulous year. The great years in music is always the year or two before the mainstream discovers a new trend, and 1988 is that sort of year. Alternative, punk, and indie were creeping up the charts a bit higher than usual, but it was not yet time for the “normals” to latch on. It was still our little secret, and for the most part untainted by the corporate morons. Tonight’s show is two hours of my favorite music from that year. 

    As for this week’s “52 weeks of Teenage Kicks” subtheme, I found a rare live recording of Soul Asylum performing the show at a 1988 show in Charlottesville, VA. I did receive word earlier today that in two weeks I will be world premiering a brand new cover from a fabulous band that is regularly heard on The Ledge. Of course, I’m always looking for even more covers, so please get the word out to anybody who has the capability to record a cover of the fabulous Undertones classic. If you have any questions, please shoot me an email at paulisded @ gmail dot com.

  • The Ledge #443:Scott’s Favorite Records, Vol. 6

    As it’s my birthday today it’s only fitting that I put together another in my series of favorite songs of all time. This time around, it’s primarily songs from the 90’s, although a handful of songs actually come from records released in the next decade.

    After listening, please go purchase those tracks you enjoy! 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.
