I will discuss recent work that aims to understand the initial state of the fragmentation region of heavy ion collisions using an entirely classical framework that incorporates the phenomenon of gluon saturation. The first step in the program, recently carried out by Kajantie, McLerran, and Paatelainen, is to study the gluon radiation from a classical point particle struck by a sheet of colored glass. We show how to improve their results for the gluon radiation distribution to take into account the recoil of the struck "quark". It is then a straight-forward matter to extend this result to the case of nucleus-nucleus collisions.
