Epitaph Seizing Airwaves For "Punk-O-Rama TV"

If you're sorely disappointed at the lack of Pennywise videos on "Total Request Live," the folks at Epitaph Records are working on a solution.

Building on their line of "Punk-O-Rama" compilations, the label will soon bring a television program to select markets in California under the banner "Punk-O-Rama TV." The show promises videos and interviews with Epitaph artists, and is slated to debut on June 19 in Hollywood. Fans can find a complete schedule of airtimes and markets at the Punk-O-Rama website (at www.punkorama.com).

Not coincidentally, the show's launch comes just as Epitaph is preparing to launch "Punk-O-Rama 4: Straight Outta The Pit," the fourth installment in the series. This time out, the album features 25 tracks from Pennywise, H20, Rancid, ALL, Bad Religion, Voodoo Glow Skulls, NOFX, Tom Waits, and others. The collection arrives on June 22.

Past "Punk-O-Rama" collections have included cuts from

Offspring, Total Chaos, Down By Law, Wayne Kramer, Descendents, New Bomb Turks, The Cramps, Bouncing Souls, and a veritable who's who of punk heavyweights.
