    Hi Jason, a Happy New Year. I’m a long time reader and listener but I’ve never left a comment before. The show with David Wells was one of the best ever, great music and infomation. I was 16 when the sixties ended but I was totally into the music scene especially the growing “underground bands”. How great to hear Hawkwind Zoo and Bill Nelson at the end of the show. Could I suggest a show showing how the sixties “Psych” groups morphed into the “underground”. I know thats been done for bands like “July” etc but it would be great to have an overview of this transition period. Thanks for such a great website and keep on trucking. Cheers. Neil.
