1979-82 Veterans Committee: Problematic Dude Songs

Selecting songs for Hall of Songs nomination is a hard job. Sometimes, while toiling over all the options, you decide that certain tunes that we now consider problematic still merit inclusion. At least that’s what one co-host of Hall of Songs would argue. 

Join Tim and Chris as they put four more songs from 1979 to ’82 onto the ballot. Luckily, they bring in a (sort-of) independent ombudsman to sort through the issues with them.

In this episode, Tim and Chris talk about the four new nominees, then go deeper into ’79-’82 with selections by artists like Split Enz and, naturally, the Grateful Dead.
