We would like to say a big thank you to all the bands and solo artists that got in touch in 2015, pointing us in the direction of so much great music to play on the show. We have played over 600 tracks this year (use the search field on our blog to find your favourite band!) and many of the songs we've played have been from new bands. Also a big GSH thumbs up to everyone who followed us, messaged us, suggested tunes for the show or helped spread the word on Facebook, Twitter etc.-much appreciated. Hope you all have a great new year. See you in 2016…
