SnC 383 – We’re AMPed
An unusual show for you this week.
We have rather demanding family circumstances entailing an elderly parent’s funeral to arrange for Friday. I’m dealing with the bureaucratic ramifications of registering deaths, getting all the paperwork in place for cremation, etc. I’m afraid SnC is one of a number of things that have had to be displaced.
However, the good news is that I was able to substitute for Kimmi who was scheduled to present AMPed for The Association of Music Podcasting this week. Kimmi presents her own Metal Deli show, so the submissions from fellow AMPed members had a more rocking vibe than they otherwise might have done.
It was a revelation, with some hugely enjoyable tracks that I’d probably not have selected for SnC. So this week’s SnC is going to be AMPed – if you get what I mean. If you’ve already heard AMPed, you’re excused (although you’re very welcome to listen again). If not, I hope you find it interesting. I certainly did.
