Gramophoney Baloney

Almost-Hallowe’en Gramophoney Baloney

Monday, October 29

Well I tried to do a mix of spooky and enchanting recordings from 1950 or earlier, but I found a bag of candy someone left at the studio, and I might have eaten too much of it, and gotten a bit carried away towards the end, on a tremendous sugar rush, completing Gramophoney Baloney’s first year at Radio Valencia. Yes! Gramophoney Baloney on Radio Valencia is one year old already! Hip! Hip! Hooray!!!! Hooray for Radio Valencia!!
