Every show starts with the ’70s! We’ll rediscover forgotten rockers, revisit unfairly maligned disco beats and replay power-pop favorites. Next: plenty of new releases, occasional live bands and more. Don’t let the nickname confuse you.
November 13, 2013: RAMONES interview from 1976, with interviewer Lisa Jane Persky live in the studio!
Listen to this show: Pop‑up player!
On July 8th, 1976, the Ramones sat down for an interview in the offices of 16 Magazine. It was just 10 weeks after the release of their debut album. Their interviewer was not unknown to them: Lisa Jane Persky was already a regular at CBGB, and she was co-starring off-Broadway with Divine. She was also a co-founder of New York Rocker, the magazine that would publish this interview in issue #4. A couple of years ago Lisa re-discovered the cassette recording of this interview, and she shared the interview in full for the very first time on The Evan "Funk" Davies show. You'll also hear ample reminiscing about New York City at the time punk rock and the CBGB scene was just starting to take off -- with plenty of complementary music, of course! Enjoy this fascinating interview with the Ramones at the dawn of their career.
