... spent a couple of hours getting tonight's show together after work but I'm so brain-dead I can't remember what I was playing - I'll just have to have faith in my post-work self's ability to select decent tunes, I reckon. Another one that runs the gamut, that I'm certain of. Tune in, rock out, get down, and drink up!
