Radio Zero

January 27, 2008

My Friday Focus show wound its way thru 2007 highlights (some big names/albums; other tunes fairly personal to me and therefore moot as any kind of "best of.") I also touched on some interesting tidbits from this still-young new year. Also tried to tickle the listeners with a few exclusives from upcoming albums. (Podcast of the show is in the works -- check this space for downloadable MP3s of this show, in two parts.)
