20th Annual Joe Strummer show on Losin It With Luscious!



The 20th Annual Joe Strummer show happened on Monday 20th 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, 2021’s show is focused into 2 hours of tunes, soundbites, rarities, and interviews.

This year is the 2nd at MMH Radio and features cool prizes from The Joe Strummer Foundation! Listen to the show, e-mail in your answers, and tune in next week to find out if you’ve won!
