Still In A Dream! Show tracks for Sat. Feb. 6/16

When the ducks line up all in a row, do a theme show! Should be a motto. Since some of the new releases for the week were in the shoegaze vein including the new Cherry Red box set Still In A Dream, it made sense to do a theme show. Well, sort of. Throughout the night we featured tracks from that new box set. Not to mention the new LPs from Money and Ulrika Spacek. Turned out really good. Hope you enjoyed the show!
