  1. Thank you kindly for these excellent summer jams.

    As a humble request, so many of us would appreciate a re-uploading of volumes 1-6 (and the retrospective)! Pretty please!?

  2. I know it’s slim, but is there a chance of the Trick or Treat series returning? I have a TON of Halloween novelty music, and I’m always looking for more… If this series came back I would be overjoyed. Please consider it. Thank you.

  3. Really looking forward to hearing this but it won’t load into iTunes – any ideas anyone??

  4. Temperatures are rising here in the lowands. So we welcome some skanking at these great tunes from the past. Very nice selection again.

  5. Started listening this morning, and after 3 sessions been busy finding even more on the internets. rEALLY INSPIRING STUFF. The idea of merging sides a and b from Joe Higgs’ Let Us Do Something single is genius. Any chance of releasing this in flac?

    I feel really lucky some someones on the internets is making all this possible. Thanks!
