I'm a Rock'n'Roll Star: Peter Hook's Unknown Pleasures: Inside Joy Division

For this Spring semester, we've decide to focus on a new themed series that we're calling I'm a Rock'N'Roll Star. The basic premise is that every week we'll take a musician's autobiography or memoir and soundtrack it, playing songs or artists that are central to the author's narrative in some way. (This is similar to the "Rock Lit" series we did a few years ago, where we soundtracked notable books about rock/punk history. That's always been a favorite series of ours, and one that we continue to receive comments and questions about to this day. Eventually we'll get audio of those shows posted to the archives, too.)

Here's the playlist for the first installment in our I'm a Rock'n'Roll Star series, "Peter Hook's Unknown Pleasures: Inside Joy Division," which was broadcast on Saturday, January 24, 2015:
