Jonathan Richman & The Modern Lovers: “Roadrunner: The Beserkley Collection”

Describe it 1 sentence: Acoustic guitar and harmonic vocals explore many genres

Favorite tracks: There’s a lot of good ones, but I really like “Afternoon” and “Lydia”

How I heard about it: I first heard Mr. Richman’s music way back in the 1990’s when he was featured in the file “There’s Something About Mary”. Recently, the song “New England” popped up in my Discover Weekly on Spotify.

Favorite line from artist’s Wikipedia: “Richman’s work with the first incarnation of Modern Lovers is a major influence on punk rock. One critic called him the ‘Godfather of Punk’.”
