The 19th Annual Joe Strummer show happened on Monday 21st of December- 2 hours of The 101ers, The Clash, The Latino Rockabilly War, The Mescaleros, and various other Joe Strummer-related bands, along with exclusive interviews and soundbites!

DJ Jesse Luscious was on the air in California when listeners alerted him to the tragic death of Joe Strummer in December 2002. After confirming the news, he immediately changed his radio show to the 1st annual Joe Strummer show and he’s done it every year since. While other years have varied from 3 hours to 6 hours, 2020’s show is focused into 2 hours of tunes, soundbites, rarities, and interviews.
