Gramophoney Baloney – the final episode!

Sunday, March 3

Today D.J. McSchmormac was joined by special guests; Matthew Lasar of the Radio Survivor blog, and DJ McSchormac-Junior, D.J. McSchmormac’s son. Matthew was told that if he sang Teddy Bear’s Picnic live on the show; a link would be posted on this blog to Radio Survivor’s PayPal, and guess what happened? Listen and find out!

Sincere thanks to all the people who’ve listened and made contact and gave encouragement and support, it’s very much appreciated, and also thanks to Radio Valencia for being the best station I’ve ever been involved with! It’s been a fantastic 16 months.

Watch for signs of DJ McSchmormac’s possible future reincarnations on the twitter or the facebook.
