On tonight’s show…

Another week flies by and here we are once again…just a few hours away from showtime.

On tonight’s show, we’ve got all your requests to play, plus a few tracks from bands who released albums this week back in the day, and we’ll see if we can fit in one or two songs which feature artists who would be celebrating their birthdays.
