Top 25 favorites of the WMSE era

As my extra extra special special for the first night of the fall pledge drive was to play my top 25 artists of the WMSE era. Most of them started in the 80s, a couple-three in the 90s, a few in the 60s/ 70s. All but a couple have had long-running careers, which wiped out the flash-in-the-pans and many early punkers.  Here are the artists I played Wednesday night, in order of when I played them but in no particular ranking:

Mark Lanegan
Patti Smith
The Silos
Elvis Costello
Bobby Bare Jr.
The Eels
Chris Whitley
The Mekons
Paul Westerberg/ Replacements
Robyn Hitchcock
Kristin Hersh/ Throwing Muses
Alex Chilton
John Doe/ X
Pat MacDonald
Lou Reed
TV On The Radio
PJ Harvey
Tom Waits
Sonic Youth
Nick Cave/ Bad Seeds
Jon Spencer Blues Explosion
Black Rebel Motorcycle Club
