Dear Listeners, 

What an awful correspondent I have been. 

I can only imagine the things they must be saying back home . . . Good for nothing! Vagrant! Nere-do-well! Rogue! Tramp! 

I am sure they are saying this and much more, but if only they knew what it is like to be in place full of wonders, perhaps then they would not be so quick to judge. 


This is Rock And Roll Radio


So, yes, I've been away, and many shows - many wonderful shows - have piled up in my absence: more radio than you can shake a stick at. I hope you've been listening live each week, because if not you have about twelve hours of radio to catch up on.

The following tracklists are more or less accurate, but let's call these "highlights" rather than complete song listings. 

With appearances from Freaks of the Week: Field Commander Draimin, Luke "The Wild Man" Forster, Bad Ben Needham and DJ Tara B.

Also, mark your calendars, The Rock And Roll DJ Night is back a week from today on Saturday, February 11th at the Henhouse. See the Events section at the end of the email for details.
