I really really really want to thank for the extended feature today. I have been suffering from winteritis and this lifted my spirits. Every song was excellent, most artists I was aware of and the one's I wasn't I am thrilled to have discovered. And it is great to find a fellow Roaches fan, it is rare to find anyone who has even heard of them.

9:31 AM, January 5th, 2019
Mike Regenstreif (host)
All the best to you and Robbie, Kath.
