Erin Eyesore brings you female-fronted post-punk + weird, with an eye on the '70s and '80s.


Songs from all the best '80s punk/cult/sci-fi films.

I moved my broadcasting time from 10-midnight to 6-8PM. It feels shiny and new and (slightly more) sober.

Also possibly trying this new thing where I include the year of the songs in my play list. I like knowing that shit. Maybe you do too.
