Here's today's BOSTON ACCENTS playlist, setting the tone for the full-record stream of the DROPKICK MURPHYS new album, Signed and Sealed In Blood. Listen in tomorrow on WFNX as we are joined in the studio by Westland!
DROPICK MURPHYS “Tessie” -- It's Dropkicks Week here at WFNX, and we gave away a pair of passes to tomorrow's CD release party at McGreevys by asking this question, appropriate with yesterday's end to the NHL lockout: What's the name of the fight song the Dropkick Murphys wrote for the Boston Bruins roughly a decade ago? Answer: "Time To Go"
