MRR Radio #1544 • 2/12/17

Former MRR content coordinator Lydia guest hosts this edition of MRR Remote Radio, and takes a trip through Greece’s rich and politically-charged punk past, from 1983 to 2000. Surely 60 minutes is not enough to explore the many great bands Greece has produced over the years, but for those eager enough to discover more, you can find links and a wealth of information (in Greek!) at anexartisi.gr or email with any questions or for more details about this Greek punk.
