Hello, Ken, cory!

Wow! Very impressive t-shirt design. Well done, Scott C!

I can see the KHLAAAAAAAAAM! And the Killdozer..but for the life of me, can't identify the other two albums. But one has to be krautrock and the other from a Japanese artist, right?
  8:21am Brendan:

Hi Ken, awesome tee. The decorative weed fringed rug really ties the room together.
  8:32am Listener Robert:

Is that a cross between the ground hog & the Easter bunny? Splitting the difference between the holidays on Mar. 2?

The albums on the T-shirt are: Khlam, KIlldozer, Buddy Scott Trio, Wire.

There are people in the UK proposing 'Heroes' to be the new England national anthem. Although 'Jerusalem' is still the strongest candidate.

Why not put the t-shirt image as the main one, Ken? It's better than a drunken guy drinking a giant mojito (or is it a Chia pet?).

Without the absolutely bonkers hallucination videos, Vinyl is just either a sequence of patronizing rock winks-and-nods connected by shots of sweaty men doing coke, or a sequence of sweaty men doing coke connected by patronizing rock winks-and-nods.
