Yeah I know I’m a tad late on this (only by 4 days), but I’ve pretty much only just woken up from my post-NYE coma so better late than never I guess!
Anyway, I trust you had a cracking NYE and have more or less adjusted to the crushing reality of being back at work, etc. If not, I might have something to help you ease into this new year. I’ve compiled a list of links to all of the Hubie Sounds shows of 2011 from the NSB Radio archives for your perusal, all in one easy to find place.
So feel free to have a dig and reminisce about what was, I’m sure you’ll agree, a cracking year for music in general and I hope this helps distract you from the rigours of being back in the real world during this stark, chilly January.
Knock yourselves out!
