Thanks to Tim for coming in to do the interview, to my engineer without whom the interviews would not happen, and to you the listeners. Send me comments if you like what you hear (or even if you don’t… feedback is so important!). See you for the next episode when I’ll have lots more new bands and new albums to play for you… 2009 is developing into quite a year for new music already.
