Radio Rumpus Room

Radio Rumpus Room? Well, it was kinda like a garage-sale high-speed mixmaster missing its top, slinging a messy slop of surf, hot rod, '60s garage, primal pop, primitive rock 'n' roll, rockabilly, psych and traditional twang since April 1991. Shortly after reaching tbe show's 19th anniversary we decided to retire it. Radio Rumpus Room's final show was 'round Memorial Day, 2010.
