Punk has been around forever. When it shows up, you think “oh yeah, there it is- punk rock man.” Most of the time it’s lurking just out of sight in all the usual places, but occasionally someone shines  a light on it and we all get a good dose of punk.  Punk is always where it  needs to be, for those of us who really need it, when we need it.  This show highlights a miniscule amount of punk, some of it hailing from Texas (a place that could use a whopping good dose of punk) and a little from Portland and a some from San Francisco, and other places as well – punk is everywhere.  All of it really good stuff. Ramones – Sheena Is A Punk Rocker (click to listen or download)~56 minutes
