I cover for Punk Rock with Dropkick Karen on KMUZ, with predictable results.
When I moved to Eugene in 1994, I was a fan of The Clash, Nirvana, and pretty much anything “alternative” and “rock.” But very quickly, I met kiisu & Colin, we formed a band, I was given a Germs tape, and I’ve been a life-long fan every since. My LPs skew heavily toward punk and rock, and when Karen asked me to cover, I jumped at the chance.
Shows like this are fun. Bring a huge batch of records, turn them up loud, and spin. Hopefully, when you put this on, you’ll see what I mean.
