Audio is a little rough on this one gang.  There were a lot of Google Hangout issues and Mike ended up doing the show from his phone.  Sorry about that.  Way to phone it in Mike.

While a tour was planned, it ended up being cancelled due to Alice’s heath at the time.  This is a shame, because these clips … Continue reading
