Music for the Masses 18 – 17 May 2000

One of the perils of the early days of Bay Radio was that it involved presenting from the DJ booth in the Aberystwyth student union. This meant that there was a fair chance that at some point your equipment might be suddenly removed for one reason or another…

Notes: Ooh crumbs, well I’m not one to moan.

Or Looper a second time – especially given how much the latter resembles a pair of new born pants. Well, the former too actually, if it comes to that)…
