Polyvinyl Craftsmen Transmission 200

Two hundred, that's a lot of shows. We now have listeners in 98 countries and every state in America which is nuts for a trio of herberts playing records in an Essex shed. Thanks for sticking with us, we love you all. Sob!

In time honoured fashion we'd like to take this opportunity to thank our families, our agents, our gynecologists, our therapists, our postmen, our corporate lawyers, our plastic surgeons and anyone else involved in what has been a very emotional journey. Blub!

We're not gonna bother listing the songs this week, there might well be a prize for the listener who can name the most. Answers on a postcard or sealed down envelope via Facebook message to the Polyvinyl Craftsmen page....and no cheating via the powers of Shazam or whatever.
