Today we welcome Dave Hofer on the show to discuss DuPage County Hardcore, an archival project he’s been working over the last few years on that has grown to a collection of nearly 500 albums and playlists across punk, metal and hip-hop genres that were originally release by local suburban Chicago area bands in the ‘80s, ‘90s and early 2000s. Check it out for yourself at dupagecountyhardcore.bandcamp.com.
