The Horsehead Moves In

The Horsehead Nebula has moved into its new timeslot!  Gone are the tired eyes and sweet sunrises of the early morning.  We're kicking it off by playing an eclectic mix of what to generally expect on the show.  Expect 70's prog, sludgy metal, psychedelic wierdness, and, of course, a really long song.  I won't say what it is, but it's good! 

Thanks for listening.
