Joan Jett and the Blackhearts - WMMR Concert 1982

Reloaded 17/May/2015 - We have added a You Tube soundtrack of another Joan Jett and The Blackhearts  gig recorded for broadcast at The Ritz, New York in January 1982. Set lists vary so both are worth a check out and both feature the feisty Joan Jett and on form Blackhearts. The New Jersey gig was originally featured on Beehive Candy in December 2007. 

Celebrating their 15th year as a rock radio station Philadelphia's WMMR featured a number of bands live in concert during 1982-83.

WMMR is held in high esteem by its listening audience and by many rock music bands and musicians for its influential role and longevity in American rock radio. It is widely recognised as the leading rock station in one of the nation's largest markets.

Joan Jett and the Blackhearts were one of those acts involved in the celebrations, and this is them recorded live in Emerald City for WMMR.

Emerald city was the new name given to the old Latin Casino club in Cherry Hill, New Jersey, USA.

The concert was around the time Joan Jett and the Blackhearts recorded their hit album 'I Love Rock N Roll'.

The hit single was a re-recording of the title track, which in the first half of 1982 was number one on the Billboard charts for seven weeks in a row. It is now Billboard’s Number 28 song of all time.

Set list:

1. Bad reputation
2. Don't Abuse me
3. Victim of Circumstance
4. I love Rock and Roll
5. Summertime Blues
6. Too bad on your Birthday
7. You're Too Possessive
8. Wooly Bully
