Making his return to the Indie Rock Hit Parade, Jon Wurster joins host Eric Schuman for a conversation about one of the most beloved American bands: the Ramones! Following up on Jon and Eric’s prior discussion of (frequently Ramones-related) ‘Rock and Roll Weirdness,’ this chat encompasses everything from personal favorites to hidden gems. Jon shares his stories of seeing the Ramones in concert (and eventually meeting them), and Eric offers an in-depth look at what makes the band’s music so enduring. Plus, we hear about Jon’s own recent adventures, including an acoustic reworking of Superchunk’s Foolish and a TV appearance with the Mountain Goats that was 10 years in the making.
