June 4, 2007 - Dirkfest with The Avengers and The Mutants

Damn!!! What a show. I had a great time with my guests Penelope Houston of The Avengers/solo John Gullack, Paul Fleming and Fritz Fox of The Mutants. Aside from plugging the shit out of Dirkfest, they all brought in cool records from their collections as well as unreleased stuff probably broadcast here for the first time. I dipped into my 70's/80's punk collection as well and played many a sound clip of Dirk and others from the various recordings. Lot's of great Mab Fab stories, Fritz Fox of the Mutants called in from the road (he's traveling in from Colorado for the show) and Penelope talked about opening for the Sex Pistols at their infamous Winterland show.
