On this day 1952 in the capitol of Turkey, the stars aligned to bring the world a rare breed of musical talent, political consciousness, style and good humor. I am speaking of Clash frontman, Joe Strummer. We miss you Joe!
Public Radio Exchange has re-released a radio show Strummer did in his later years for the BBC. Not only was he an outstanding musician, he was a true music efficiendo. You get a sense of his international upbringing with his love of world music.
