Happy New Year! How's yer head?

Happy New Year, valued listeners!! Let us hope that 2009 represents a marked improvement over its predecessor. Tonight's experiment is principally overseen by Bad Sister Heidi, with Father Angus typing and pushing CDs at BSH when she is not ruling imperious over the board and making decisions by fiat. Reverend Velveteen is hovering nearby, in spirit if not in flesh. Lo! Behold! She has arrived! Rejoicing is general, though subdued owing to our collective not-quite-over-it status.

This evening we bring you music suggestive of how many of you may have felt last night or earlier this morning...and of how you may feel now as a result of your manifold sins and transgressions and overindulgences.
