97 Allan Holdsworth, part 2

With Ed still suffering from internet connection woes, Malaclypse stepped up and arranged the hardware to enable him to host the show.  And it was a good debut, with no dropouts or awkward silences, very encouraging.  We began with only seven listeners, but finished up with a peak of 24, which was very pleasing.  Unfortunately Hugh Lynch was not able to join us on air, having suffered a PC failure himself.  His help in compiling the show is gratefully acknowledged.

As promised, here is a link to a YouTube copy of the original 1980’s SynthAxe demo tape
