Good for you Dave -- Solid State! I was hunting around for batteries today for an old boombox which I discovered only worked on the radio function...

This Ali’s a little hand held cheap & nasty looking thing that has surprisingly good sound.

Nice set Steve. As much as the old Material "material" is brilliant, it's a shame that bassist Laswell ended up with a mix so thin in the low end.

Steve Kirkland (host)
Thanks, Ben.

Listening on a USB speaker box and streaming on the phone. The speaker has mirrors and pulsating lights, it’s cool. Can easily recharge both in the car. Love Bill Nelson, thanks!

No power on the weekend so only listening now and enjoying the show, at least what I've heard so far - really enjoyed hearing Miracle Legion, you don't hear them often on the radio these days & good to see The NoMen & the Big Stir family in the mix - Thanks!
