Riot on Sunset Strip Revisited

Dedicated to the memory of Sky Saxon, this double-wide 2009 episode of The Mal Thursday Show shines the spotlight on the L.A. scene of the '60s and the garage revival of the '80s.

In any case, here are two hours of Southern California sounds that are definitely not Yacht Rock.  Presented in Living Monophonic and Ultrasonic Stereophonic Sound. Dig!
