10/4/2011 The Pop Shop

 

A tasty dose of pop favorites--some with a harder edge--including tracks from the Who, Ian Dury & the Blockheads (thanks for the request, Eric!), Plimsouls, XTC, Joan Jett and more. Plus, a nod to wacky screenwriter/filmmaker Tommy Wiseau, and his production of "The Room"......a flick that's been called the worst movie ever made!

Many thanks to all those who've pledged to KFAI and the Pop Shop this fall. There's still time to get your goody bag from Liberty Finch. Call 612-375-9030 or go online at kfai.org.
