Synth City: Copy cats need to go

Click here to listen again.

Last show for February, which is suddenly tinged with sadness, shock and some bewilderment.

Firstly, I need to say goodbye to James Skuse, the solid bassman and gent from friends of this show, the Bristol band Sinestar, who we tragically lost today, such a shock to us all. There is so much we could say, but I will look for a certain graffiti sign on a wall that will forever remind me of the smile of Cheeky James- Could you please check out the link setup by his Wife Amy and loving family, to help research, protect and hopefully help to save others from this horrendous C thing – Amy’s Challenge

On the show, I chatted about the rip off merchants who not only like to sell bootlegs T-shirts at live shows but now steal charity fundraising t-shirt ideas- I wonder what you feel about such things, and had any experiences related to the merchandise game.
