I love WCSB. There are several shows that I listen to regularly, and I am continually blown out.

In particular, Herb's Anti-Urban Contemporary... is one of the greatest. He plays stuff that I have never heard, and stuff that I immediately need to have in my possession.


I would like to start a list of absolutely essential records that must be in your collection. All genres...No Particular order...No limit to the number of submissions...Comment at will...

3.The Who - Live at Leeds
4.The Rolling Stones - Exile on Main Street

Actually, South of Heaven is great, but Reign in Blood is more essential. Motley Crue, Shout at the Devil. Lynrd Skynyrd, Street Survivors. Def Leppard, Pyromania (LOL, John, but seriously). Phil Collins, No Jacket Required (but Ritalin is).

I used to love New Order's Power Corruption and Lies, but I don't it has aged well and does does not really transcend the time at which it was made. It sounds too techno w/ cheesy keyboards and programmed drums; I much prefer Movement.
