From the Archive: Joe Strummer’s “London Calling” Radio Show

I first heard Joe Strummer’s London Calling radio show over the BBC World Service back in 1999.  It was a simple concept:  Joe playing his favourite records.

These programs are now being made available once again.  Radio stations on both sides of the Atlantic have been purchasing the programs for re-broadcast.

All shows ran 30 minutes.  I you’d like to sample four of them at no charge, go here.

(Thanks to Larry for pointing this out.)
