Wax! Crackle! Pop! Show #50: Radios In Motion! Celebrating XTC

Monday, December 15


Special guests Pat Spurgeon (Rogue Wave) and Charles Kremenak (Rockologist) join DJ Jim G in celebrating one of the greatest and most interesting bands to emerge out of the punk/new wave scene and into the pop challenging 80’s, X T C !! We play some of our favorite album cuts, live tracks, and rarities featuring some seldom heard demos and a dash of side project material, including The Dukes of Stratosphere.
