Steve Kirkland (host)
Approaching 38 years, Mr. B... That amount of time brings a lot of quality and variety to the show

6:13 PM, November 14th, 2020
Wow! Indeed! Long may you run, Sir, and thank-you!

6:15 PM, November 14th, 2020

Thanks Wally! Whether of not it's been a long, strange trip (of course it has been), I want to continue to bring to listeners a true musical trip

adulKt LIFE... no misspell ... sic(k)

6:55 PM, November 14th, 2020

And we appreciate having a musical guide on the trip - many thanks Steve!

Steve Kirkland (host)
Indeed Scott. As you know, Ken Hensley, Heep's keyboardist and one of its songwriters, died early this month at 75, apparently actively in the process of recording, which he had never stopped doing for more than half a century. Don't think I listened to much they recorded after 1975, and never in real time

7:12 PM, November 14th, 2020
Just DIG HECK outa The Heliocentrics! Always putting out cool eccentric sounds. And now, Theremin if i'm not mistaken.... Thanks!
