Fanatic! Hello from Milton, Australia. All has been going well out here. I had a night off last week and got to see Kid Congo and the Pink Monkey Birds play in Sydney. They tore it up! They have USA dates coming up. Do not miss this band!

Road manager Ward and I have been hitting the record stores with all intensity and have been finding great stuff. I will have a lot of all this to play you in our December shows.
Alex Cameron’s epic Jumping the Shark is back in print. It’s on Secretly Canadian. Run, do not walk to this one. I have heard Mr. Cameron’s new album and it’s amazing. Can’t wait to roll that one out for you.
Fanatic, it’s September wherever you are! Here in Australia, it’s early spring. Lots of brooding clouds and great afternoons. Get your September listening happening, no matter what it takes!
If you look below, you will see that we have once more done it again. Another two hours of greatness. Please tune in if you can and if possible, listen over and over. Until next week, keep the music playing and STAY FANATIC!!!
