    Like your other shows, this is so nicely put together. Some that stand out for me… the first song, by Greg Jong, which has a fun energy and also, Friday’s Child by The Rollo Treadway – such a cool song. Both have a 60s-ish sound behind them that i like so much. The Trudy’s Lost Summer of Love is also fantastic. I have to mention Poison in the Well, Jo Gabriel’s voice is so expressive and yes, as you mentioned, very like Kate Bush. All of Pia Silvi’s songs that you featured are lovely, but i think my favorite of hers is They Are Only Avatars. What an absolutely enchantingly beautiful song! Lily Green’s Mr. Ladybird is wonderfully sweet and touching, i love this. Violations, by The Oscillations, is charged and addicting, for me. I also enjoyed Big Block 454 and Mercury Rev very much. Rebsie Fairholm’s Spirits of the Dead is always a treat and a nice ending to the show. Thanks, Eppy.
