Ribbon Around a Bomb
Ribbon Around a Bomb Edition 89: Hag Ugly
Dance-y, Punk-y, New Wave-y, freaky and funky music made by women, with a focus on rarities from the '70s and '80s. Every Saturday from 6-8PM with Erin Eyesore.
Arielle joins us to read some fantastic punk rock, imagined-diary-entry-style prose, and play a few picks.

I (two weeks after the show aired) hereby recant my on-air statement that the Tana Emmolo-Smith song is not good. It is good.
