This show was a bit of a cop-out because almost all of these tracks had been aired on my show at some point during this year but I didn't have a lot of time to put it together so it's a virtual "greatest hits" of "Where The Action Is" in 2009. Normal service will be resumed next weekend. In fact, the next two shows are already finished.

Feel free to leave a comment or indeed a request or two.
