Modcast #354: March Modness

College basketball fever is sweeping the nation as it does every year about this time. March Madness is upon us and there is no cure, no vaccine, nothing but the just wait it out. With that in mind I thought I'd create my own mod bracket of great songs and see which one come out on top, voted on by you my dear listener. So, take a listen and then leave a comment letting me know which song you think should come out on top. No losers here, but still can only be one winner.

Modcast #352: Pleased To Meet Me, Album 1, Side 1, Track 1

Every story starts somewhere. In music, every band or artist has a first album, and every album has a side one. Or, at least they used to when LPs ruled the day. And every record had a side one, track one. So this week you're going to get a bunch of great bands very first introduction of themselves to you, the music loving public.

Listen Now
