Diodes - Toronto + San Francisco June 1980

 Canada had some great Punk bands back in the late 1970s and The Diodes were one of them. They were one of the first Punk bands in Toronto and helped get that scene going by opening the Crash 'n' Burn club. Between 1977 and 1982 they released 4 albums. Here are two radio broadcasts from the summer of 1980 that capture them in their prime. Sound quality is excellent on both. The Mab show is from the collection of Terry Hammer.
