Episode details

Tosh and Kimley discuss "Golden Hits of the Shangri-Las" by Ada Wolin from the 33 1/3 series. The Shangri-Las were a teenage girl group of the 1960s with a reputation for coming from the mean streets of Queens, NY. Their world was bleak and things always ended badly in the melodrama of their biggest hits like “Leader of the Pack” and “Remember.” They had a huge influence on a diverse group of musicians from The NY Dolls and The Damned to Blondie and Alex Chilton. We venture down the path of their dark world. Theme music: "Behind Our Efforts, Let There Be Found Our Efforts" by LG17
