Going back to the 60s and 70s for this edition, with covers of two great precursors of Power Pop: Badfinger and Tommy James & The Shondells! (bonus piece of trivia: I’ve interviewed Tommy James, P. Hux and Johnette Napolitano of Concrete Blonde – all three of whom appear in this episode!) (70 minutes)
