  • Johnny Goodtimes

    Great show, but I wouldn’t be hurt if you found the heart to play some Wu-Tang.

    Another podcast vote, I can’t listen at work.

    Do they repeat shows over the weekend. I forgot to listen. Sounds like it was great though. I’m surprised you didn’t play “Video Killed The Radio Star” as your first song.

  • annie

    Well done. We’re one step closer to my goal of setting up Philly’s version of EVR.org.
