The first episode of Start the Music without a guest, but have no fear because that half hour of talking has been replaced with twenty-six shiny minutes of music from across the genres. Take it on a commute, listen on a lunch break, there’s something for everyone. For less than the cost of a latte in Canada you can own all these tracks.

This episode I’m joined by Corbett Redford, director & writer of the Green Day funded documentary film Turn it Around: The Story of East Bay Punk. We talk about 924 Gilman, being a first time director and about being a punk in the East bay area.
There’s some music too, all related to the film. Make sure to listen to the end for a song by supergroup The Armstrongs that you can buy on iTunes with proceeds going to 924 Gilman.
