All this week at WMBR, Cambridge , past and present colleagues are celebrating the 30th Anniversary of The Late Riser's Club , of which I was an original host back in 1977. After listening to yesterday's show featuring my old friends Greg Reibman, Albert O and Blowfish and doing a 34 minute cameo today (download here), I am flooded with memories of my early days of radio, playing punk and it's various offshoots in the basement studios on the MIT campus. If your in the Boston area, please check out the party as described in the picture.
In honor of this landmark program, that still airs to this date, I start today's show with choice tunes that remind me of my Boston radio roots. Pogo to the likes of 999, Althia & Donna, DMZ, The Forgotten Rebels and Peter Dayton. We then jump into the RFW Time Machine for classics from Bo Diddley, Johnny Otis Show, Bob & Earl and The Shirells and end with random selections from Primal Scream, U.K. Squeeze, Brian Setzer, Los Lobos, Dyan Diamond, Blue Oyster Cult, David Werner and David Bowie.
