Show 022: 80’s Garage Rock Revisited – Playlist and Archived Stream

Sport the paisley shirt or that polka dotted mini skirt because Listen Up! will be exploring those sounds from the 80’s Garage Rock “revival” scene. Lots of fuzz, jangle and distortion played on vintage gear with terse and catchy songs made with minimal recording budgets. Not to mention….a load of fun.

Follow the Listen Up! Blog  and/or “like” the show on Facebook . Both serve as an addendum and a means to interact with the program.
