Theme-addict guest DJ Scott Bragg joined me once again again in the forest, and this time we took the theme to a new conceptual level – all songs had to have someone’s name in the title. It made for a wide ranging and fun mix, with a lot of name checking along the way!
Newlyweds John and Meaghan Nash were my very special guests on this night, one of their first public appearances since their honeymoon! Check out the electric mix of psych, garage, disco, reggae, soul and more!

Plus there was a special live performance by the band Floating Action with their new touring rhythm section, Chad and Derek of the High Strung, before they […]
