Ready Steady Go

November 11, 2009

The title of the post today is from a track brought to you by Generation X in the late 70’s on their self-titled album. I decided to play some old punk early in the show and peppered later on due to an exhibit I just saw at the MoMA called “Looking at Music: Side 2”. Here’s an article about it if you want to check it out: Bob Gruen’s Journey to MoMA.
