That was the temp in the studio, not because of all the amazing rock & metal being played!! NO the air con in the studio was cream crackered!! (Knackered/ Broke/ Caput/ Finished/ Done/ Elvis Has Left The Building!) and it meant that we were at Spandex Melting point 5 mins into the show!!

But I struggled on through the heat and mist, to bring another slice of Mad Dan-ness style entertainment to brighten up another rawkin' Friday night.

Tune in next Friday night the brilliant new single from W.A.S.P. - Crazy from their forthcoming album Babylon will be gettin' a spin and it's a belter as usual from Blackie!
