Political Songs Show on Election Eve - 11/3/08

'Twas the night before election and what better way to celebrate than to play politcally-themed songs of the post-punk, punk, and alternative genres? What? I'm seriously asking you. Because I couldn't think of anything better so that is exactly what I did.

Sadly, there was a point in the show where the broadcast abruptly stopped but like any good American, I rolled up my sleeves, opened up a sound editing program, and pasted the rest of the songs left on my playlist to the end of the recording posted on my blog. You can download that recording by following the link below:
