Oh shit that was awesome. I first heard McRad when Public Domain came out, and didn't know they were from Philly until many years later. Rad footage of Groholski's ramp!

I remember going to see McRad at CB's. As I walked up, I saw a guy skating the center island on Bowery and falling a lot. I was like "that can't be Chuck Treece". A few hours later I saw him on stage doing his thing. All-around talent. Great show. They opened for Underdog.
If anyone comes across the show they did on WFMU, it's a great listen.

The policy is profoundly important, but it must be communicated to the parents, although some don’t realize the consequences.
