Polyvinyl Craftsmen Transmission 27 - All You Can Eat (Again)

Hello devotees of all things Polyvinyl. Due to a mixture of Wobbly Lamps gigs, heavy workloads and hurricane dodging we don't have a show for you this week.

I'm sure you'll cope but just in case you feel the need to hear our mellifluous tones today or over the weekend how about re-visiting an old show that you may have missed or forgotten about.

The random polyvinylizer has selected Transmission 27, our "All You Can Eat" special. It seems particularly apt having spent last week gorging on American diner food.

Tuck in!

Who's listening and where?

We're doing a bit of a census to try and work out who's listening and where you all come from. So can you do us a favour if you are a regular/irregular listener to either Polyvinyl Craftsmen or Church of thee PVC and leave us a comment on the blog or Facebook with your name/city/country and some thoughts on what like/don't like and what you would like to hear more/less of on the show. Also do you listen to it or download it?

All input would be gratefully received, we might even play a couple of requests if you ask for something one of us has got! 

If we get so few comments that it's obvious no-one is listening we will think about a new format consisting purely of christian rock, Cliff Richard hits and bible readings.

Cheers, Laggers, Miggins and Coop.
