While we do love the Dead Kennedys, The Clash takes the top spot in our own list. You may be asking, how come we never feature our number one band in any of our previous playlists? Well, this time, on our 100th post, we are honoured to have in our playlist a special documentary from BBC Radio2. It was aired around March 2003 and was actually available for download but just for a week. I guess it might be difficult to come across these days. The title: LONDON CALLING - A TRIBUTE TO JOE STRUMMER. This is Part I; we are uploading Part II next time.

And if you're the BBC, or if you have proprietary rights to this broadcast, and take offense at our tribute, please email us at trashradiomanila[at]gmail[dot]com.

Enjoy, friends, and here's to more posts, more music, and more of the good stuff.
