Widge’s Sonic Emporium on Louder Than War Radio – 28 October 2023

Episode 20
“Tombstones, Epitaphs, Wreaths, Flowers, All That Jazz”

As I said on the other show, apologies for this getting put up so late. Things have been nuts.

Welcome. Here are what passes for show notes. The reason the playlist is in the format you find it is because I really need a life. The very overwrought explanation can be found here.

Format is:
