Chuck Meehan/March 2, 2013
Joseph A. Gervasi interviews one of the most loved and respected men in the Philly punk scene, Chuck Meehan. In this lengthy interview we talk about Chuck’s upbringing, how he discovered punk, the early shows he attended at places like Love Hall, putting on hardcore shows at Abe’s Steaks, collecting cans of food for the homeless with Tim Dunn, clashing with DC punks up for a fight, the DIY ethos through the years, and much more.
