This show is a Cousin Special with shouts going out to Stevie G and cousin Julie who is going to the Zoo. We send a shout also to John in Wales who only just avoided a flooded caravan this summer. The Welsh summer put us in the mood for these great tunes – and we send a Happy Birthday to Chris in Wales and a shout out to the Dark Lord who had us summoned to Kent at short notice! (Big Up to the Bristol Ring Road and John’s dodgy sat nav).
Also have to mention the Leviticus crew who put on the Leftfield site in Luton while some people were running around with an Olympic Torch – the bands were great and it was great to catch up with Janet, Kath Keenan (!), Tim (thanks for letting us stay over), the performers, and the organizers who did a fantastic job.
It may be a wet summer but it wont stop the Diamond Seeds crew from loving the music. Keeping up to our usual high standards – we hope you enjoy Podcast Number 3!
