Podcast time: Violent Femmes and other classic albums turn 30

27

March

You played them on the turntable even though your parents couldn't stand the lead singer's whiny voice. You danced to their tunes like an insane person on the loose at every fraternity party in college. And maybe you even tried to be clever and get your wedding DJ to play a song or two late during the reception.

But is it really possible that the debut album of the Violent Femmes is 30 years old? Dude, it's true. It's true. And this week's Stuck in the '80s podcast celebrates three golden albums from 1983, including this gem by the Femmes. It's part of a new series of shows marking three decades of amazing music.
