Crime and punishment

If the audio stops playing, press stop and allow time for the stream to load.
We've covered the theme of incarceration in a previous programme, but it's time we revisit a rich seam through popular music of songs about criminal behviour and subsequent retribution by the law. It's also another opportunity to hear Billy Brag's fine piece of poetry "Rotting n Remand" as well as two sound track heavyweights - Lalo Shifrin and Roy Budd.
