Modcast #500: Let Me Spell It Out For Ya

I started this modcast in part because it seemed to me that a lot of great mod bands from the original Southern California scene of the 80s never got their due. My first few shows were dedicated to sharing the music of some those bands and then it just sort of grew from there.

Remember back in 2006 the internet was still in its infancy really. Napster had opened up digital music in the 90s, but it still wasn't easy to find music by bands like these online. You couldn't just type their name in google and have a complete playlist wash over you. So, I thought I'd share what I had. I had digitized a lot of my mod catalog a few years before that and so I had the mp3s and could share them. And now here we are 500 shows later.

I gotta tell you after doing this show for 15 years, this modcast is really the first love letter to myself. I've collected some of my favorite artists and a few of my favorite songs, fitting them all into a strange little theme that Mrs. Suave came up with. I struggled to figure out a good way to hang 500 shows together for this one particular modcast. I just couldn't come up with a good theme. And then she dropped this little gem on me. Let's see if you can figure it out. If you do, let me know.
