Part one of our two-part celebration of RSD Black Friday (November 25) focuses on the late Joe Strummer (1952-2002) and his world. Joe's surviving life partner Lucinda Tait remembers life with Joe during the time of his last band The Mescaleros, and discusses the expansive Joe Strummer 002: The Mescaleros Years recently released on the Dark Horse Records label. Joe's friend, filmmaker Don Letts talks about Joe, forming Big Audio Dynamite (B.A.D.) with Mick Jones, and the new documentary about Letts' life, Rebel Dread.
Terry Currier from Music Millennium in Portland, Oregon, returns to the show to remember the 1999 instore concert that is at the heart of this year's RSD Black Friday limited edition vinyl release, Joe Strummer - Live At Music Millennium. Comedian and drummer Fred Armisen pops in to tell us about the time he met Joe and The Clash. Plus our regular check-in with RSD's Carrie Colliton remembers Public Image Ltd's Keith Levene (also a founding member of The Clash!)
