“KTFT Fan Friday” – Discoveries from January 2020

 | L | | H | | M | aka LightningHockeyMusic ~ 4/30/2021
.
Greetings!
I’m happy to announce that I’ve been invited by Bobby Rayfield from “https://www.mixcloud.com/MonumentsInRuin/” to be a guest host on “KTFT Fan Friday”.
.
Airing Friday, April 30th at 1 p.m. Eastern on “trendkillradio.com”. I’ll be sharing with you some new-to-me sounds in an hour long show titled, “Discoveries from January 2020”. You’ll also hear me provide some nuggets of information regarding the bands.
.
This is a journey of musical discovery through the first month of 2020, yes, over a year ago; but I just finished finding and assembling all this music a couple of weeks ago (started researching these albums a couple of months ago). Amazing how much music I miss while making other plans.
.
You can also check out a 96 minute version of the show that has bonus tracks and is without commentary from me; just glorious music:
