Polyvinyl Craftsmen Transmission 265


Happy Birthday to us. It's six years since we started this show so a big thanks to anyone who's listened in during that time. 

Here's to six more, unless Laggers finds that removal van to take him to one of NASA's newly discovered planets. He'll never do it, it would take 150 million years for his Discogs deliveries to arrive.
