Hey ho! Let’s go! (I’m just saying that because I’ve had too much sugar…) This week, the Punktronic show is back to playing LOTS of different types of music. We’ve got pop, psychobilly, punk, industrial, alternative, postpunk, techno, and lots of weird novelty stuff! (Hard to believe what we can cram into just over an hour!!!) This is some crème-of-da-crop PUNKTRONIC freak-o-stuffs! I hope you like it as much as I do!!!

---Quit closing comment!!!
And that’s it! This one got pretty brutal towards the end. Sorry (but not that sorry.) I know this might not appeal to everyone, but that’s okay. I’m into music that’s fun (sometimes,) and I think every single track I played in this list has merit, even if the merit is in just how silly it is! (I ALMOST didn’t have the courage to play the cut by Brak, buuuuut… Fuck it. If I can’t play something silly on my own show, when WILL I be able to play it??? Right, damn, now!
As with every show, these songs were chosen for appreciation / education purposes only! We’re trying to keep the fun in music, and the musicians themselves alive! (Even the ones who are no longer with us… Sad as that may be…) If you found any of these track enjoyable, please consider dropping some credits and BUYING a copy, either physical or digital, particularly from someplace where the artists get a nice cut, like Bandcamp!!!
We’ll see you again in a few days…or a week…or whenever I get around to putting another program together!!! Keep them rekkids spinnin’!!!
