Post Punk Goes Surfing - 8/15/14
After a long winter's nap, this podcast has re-emerged, just in time for summer to be over. And what better way to say goodbye to summer than with an episode dedicated entirely to the effect of surf music on punk, post punk, new wave, etc.? According to all my books on saying goodbye to summer, nothing.

Only one way to find out, just click on the link below and listen to my show. Well, there are actually plenty of ways to find out but I still recommend listening to the show:
