Although Billy Bragg got top billing, this is clearly Wilco’s show all the way - poor Billy doesn’t even get a vocal mic. The late great Jay Bennett is masterfully playing the ‘mad scientist’ role with a double-necked Danelectro and giant fur coat.
This week, songs about secrets from The Runaways, J Church, Fred Schneider, Tommy Keene, Redd Kross and more!
Wonderful to see that the Flamin’ Groovies are back at it and still able to overload microphones. Never heard the story behind this sleaze-anthem before - makes sense that Kim Fowley was involved.
This week, songs about teenagers from The Exploding Hearts, David Bowie, The 22.214.171.124’s, The Pooh Sticks and more!
This week’s topic is yellow songs, featuring Jackie Lomax, 20/20, R.E.M., The Blues Magoos, Eleni Mandell and more!

This week, a set of stupid songs from the likes of “Weird Al” Yankovic, Tommy Stinson, Lou Reed, Aimee Mann and more!
