Modcast #374: Get Hip!

"We can rebuild him. We have the technology. We can make him better than he was. Better, stronger, faster." It worked for Steve Austin, and I'm hopin' it works for me. I'm going in for a hip replacement so I can get back to dancing, back to scootering and, just back to it all in general. This modcast is better, stronger, faster and totally hip.

Modcast #373: The Ladies of Britpop

This week's show is focused on Britpop's leading ladies. The boys of Britpop have got their due over the years, but in my opinion the ladies are all too often forgotten. So here they are in all their musical glory.


Technical note: For some reason Podomatic is not playing friendly with all browser platforms. It seems to work best with Chrome lately, and not so well with ID or Firefox. If you have trouble streaming or downloading, I have also uploaded the modcast to Mixcloud: https://www.mixcloud.com/mistersuave/modcast-373-the-ladies-of-britpop/]
