Listening to Gary Crowley's Punk and New Wave Show from yesterday afternoon spotlighting the Ramones got me all jacked up hearing stories from listeners about their favourite songs, albums, gigs etc and so I thought that maybe Music is the Doctor should follow suit and do our own tribute to the Ramones.
There will be a number of Ramones tracks, not necessarily the famous ones, but album tracks, B-Sides etc and also bands inspired by the Ramones so much so that they wrote songs about them! There's even a couple of cover versions thrown in for good measure. Also tracks from members of the Ramones in their other musical guises, Johnny was the only one not to go off and do his own thing musically. Due to the shortness of some songs the playlist is extended a little and a wee bonus thrown on at the end.
Notes on each song are dispensed with as we'll just let the music do the talking.
