Guest interviewer Mike McKee interviews three members of The Cabbage Collective, a group of friends who put on DIY shows in Philadelphia throughout the 1990s (with origins in South Jersey in the late 1980s). Chris Fry, Bull Gervasi, and Joseph A. Gervasi talk about growing up in working class southern NJ; discovering punk; doing shows in an ethical manner at venues such as the Church at 48th and Baltimore, Stalag 13, the ACT-UP Space, and the First Unitarian Church; the changes in the scene over the years; what they do today, and much more.
