Tales From The Drop Box Episode 132 returns this week with a punk-pop flavored episode. Normally, I would inform you of my perspective on developments in the real world. This week, I am in a bit of a holding pattern as what we are learning about the Mueller investigation into Trump and his cronies starts to get very interesting. I’m hoping the full report drops in time for Christmas as a gift to America. Like both music and life – timing is everything and I’ll bet Mueller’s timing will be impeccable.
A passing of note – Pete Shelley, the leader of The Buzzcocks died last week at age 63. For regular followers of this podcast, you know that The Buzzcocks were the most influential band of my youth and their music changed my life. How much? Listen here: Tales From The Drop Box Episode 69 – The Buzzcocks . RIP Pete.
As for musical timing, this episode is about one hour long and filled with mega hit songs – at least to me.
Have a terrific week!
