Eclectic Mayhem playlist 6/16

June 16th, 2008 · Comments Off on Eclectic Mayhem playlist 6/16 · By

Unfortunately, I had to leave the Truman Sparks show early to get over to the station … but I had fun doing the show this week. Somehow this one felt like it went by really quickly; maybe I’m just getting into the routine of doing a regular radio show.

You know what to expect; heavy smart-rock with a huge dose of pummeling metal destruction. {Unfortunately I can’t tell you what time it starts or the price, because it looks like the Outback Lodge have allowed their […]
