It’s So Bad It’s Good.

Today from 4-5pm I’ll be a guest DJ on the Satan vs. Sunshine radio show on W+K radio.  For this special occasion I’ve chosen to dig through my dusty record collection and pull out some of my favorite “so bad it’s good” albums to share.  Part of the fun with these LPs is not only the music, but the album art.  When I’m digging through heaps of junk at the Goodwill bins looking for some new tunes, it’s always the cover that catches my eye first and makes me snatch it up, cross my fingers and hope the music is so bad it’s good!

Below are the album covers for the songs that I’ll be spinnin’ today.  Be sure to examine them in detail because the visuals add so much more to the listening experience.

Several of these are actually quite well known and you can find them posted elsewhere on the web, but there are a few gems in my collection that I haven’t seen referenced anywhere else on the web.  After the show I’ll post some mp3s for your listening pleasure.
