K98X The Fringe Podcast: Episode # 5 -- A Tribute to The Replacements

Late last week, news broke that The Replacements had played their final show.  The band reunited in 2012 and embarked on a number of festival appearances and a headlining tour before calling it a day for the second time.  Sadly I never got to see the band during one of their reunion shows and now it looks like I probably never will get to see The Mats live.

This week's episode of the K98X The Fringe Podcast is dedicated to The Replacements.  We'll be playing songs from the band, solo stuff from Paul Westerberg and Tommy Stinson (and Stinson's bands Perfect and Bash & Pop), and a few songs by bands that are/were highly influenced by The Replacements.

To Paul, Tommy, and company, all I can say is thank you for the music and I hope to one day get the chance to see you perform live in some capacity.
