072R Gentle Giant

A favourite band for me, and one that has a small but enthusiastic following still.  Lots of folks attended, so we may have spread the word a bit.

204 Sun Arise!

A show meant for the Solstice itself, but pushed back by circumstances beyond my control.  Well received, over 30 listeners, which is a good number for a holiday season show.  I did work hard to put a good set together, and am glad it went down well.  Thank you all for listening in and giving us feedback, we listen and improve.

071R No More Fillers Any More

Our second No Fillers show, featuring albums that we judge to have no filler tracks at all, so we can play any track – in practice we aim for the less well-known ones.  A gratifyingly large attendence too, 25 for a lot of the show, 27 max – beating the numbers from five years ago.

202 Kansas- The Steve Walsh Years

The American prog band that moved into hard rock via art and a side-trip into Christian rock gave us a great show, looking only at the years with Steve Walsh as leader/contributor.  We had a good audience for a holiday weekend (Fathers Day in the US too), up to 23 connections.  The preshow was just three of their long-form tracks, played live, and the postshow concluded with a couple of Steve Walsh solo album tracks.
