Between 1971 and 1985 The Palladium (in its earlier years known as The Academy) hosted a range of acts from The Band to AC/DC to The Clash - whose iconic "London Calling" cover was taken on the East Village venue's stage on September 21, 1979. In later years, the concert hall became a dance club…and then the site of NYU dorms and a Trader Joes. Joining us to tell the story of The Palladium is writer and Trouser Press co-founder, Ira Robbins, and Debbie Harry of new-wave icons Blondie.
