Edgeland Ep.22: Skatin', Satan, and Edgeland w/ Vern Laird and Anthony Pappalardo
You know the old saying "April showers bring you a new episode of Edgeland" right? Well it is very true this week. Edgeland takes a trip to the past with the latest installment of Hardcore History. Did you ever wonder about the first straightedge clothing company? Well Bill has and he brings you all of his findings. In the interview portion of the show this week there is lots and lots of skateboard talk. In the edge column Bill talks with the Bones Bearings team manager Vern Laird about skateboarding in Philadelphia, Love Park vs. FDR, and how one becomes a team manager. In the non edge column Anthony Pappalardo of Ten Yard Fight and In My Eyes talks about the early straightedge influence on skateboarding, long lost Boston skate spots, and Boston hardcore towards the end of the 90's.
