30 March 2019 (Crashes and Looped Skips)

An eagle flew over Freeform as we entered the station, and we started with a tribute to Scott Walker. But then a Cyokha Grace song died in the player and later John Cage reading Finnegan’s Wake looped itself and stole the show.  We ended with more tribute to Scott.
