Hey everybody!

Here we are at the end of another month and as it turns out we are going out with a BANG!!!
Tonight's guest cohost is none other than Nikki from the celebrated podcast "Everything and the Kitchen Sink" and as is always the way with a cohost, she has picked the playlist.

See how I cleverly let someone do all the work? (I know, you're on to me. LOL)

Anyway, it promises to be a fun show and here is the stuff we will be playing, if we don't get too wrapped up with the silliness.

Devil's Wave ... The Gnarly Ones *
Right On You ... Benjamin Booker
Shelter In My Arms ...  Simone Denny and the Stereo Dynamite *
Down Down ... The Coathangers
My Place Your Town ... The Ballantynes *
20th Century Strategies ... Public Animal *
Going Out Tonight ... Danko Jones *
Poka ... Mabiisi
sPEak ... Public Enemy
Love and Romance ... The Slits


There you go.

Again many thanks to Katey Morley for last week's show.

And thanks to YOU for listening.
