Fanatic! Wheels up for New Zealand in a few hours. The first 8 months of this year have been only the warm up for me. With only 52 shows in 15 countries done, I have about 100 more to go before the end of the year.

I know that autumn doesn’t start for awhile but for me, the beginning of September is the end of summer. This is our last summer broadcast. We have been working on our September broadcasts for weeks and I think you will dig them.

Upcoming Events

A lot of great records out this year. Dinosaur Jr., Thee Oh Sees and the Boris re-issue of Pink are but a few that come to mind. Later in the year, we will start playing tracks from the new Point Juncture, WA album, Me or the Party. Perfect from start to finish as far as I can hear. Really looking forward to getting that one to you.

Below you will see that we are saying farewell to what has hopefully been a great season of listening and getting ready for more great listening ahead.

Thank you for staying with this show and STAY FANATIC!!!
