J's Indie/Rock Mayhem - 10th September 2014
[Welcome to another edition of J's Indie/Rock Mayhem. This edition is shortened just a bit as I had some trainees in who were playing pretty different stuff from my normal show, so I just shut the podcast off when they took over. Hopefully the hour and a half will be enough this week. Clearly sarcasm.
I think that I'm going to start scaling back my posts on here a bit. I natter on a bit much at times. I'll still go into specifics when I feel like it, but it'll save time on the posting if I just stick to album names in the descriptions rather than feeling like I have to say something about each song. Thoughts?
Next week, I'll be celebrating 15 years of J's Indie/Rock Mayhem on WQFS. Tune in as it ought to be a pretty good show.
