3/30/07 Show - Goin' Solo

"He was a cop, and good at his job. But then he committed the ultimate sin and testified against other cops - gone bad. Cops who tried to kill him, but got the woman he loved instead. Framed for murder, now he prowls the badlands. An outlaw hunting outlaws, a bounty hunter - a RENEGADE!"

That pretty much sums it up. That's the story behind all of the artists I played on this evening's show. They were in a band that was fairly significant and fairly well-known and the kind of band I would play normally on my show but then they decided to prowl the badlands as either a solo artist or maybe as part of a new band or maybe just through a side project. The punk and post-punk highway is littered with these examples and I tried to give you only the finest of finery during my two radio hours of the week.

Download this mp3 from the link, listen to it, and let it take a Harley ride down that dusty highway. And if you see Reno Raines out there, you tell him I said "Hey".
