Ash has been on board with the Ears now for a couple of months but his first guest was local musician Warren Glover. Warren joined us in the studio to guest program some tracks for our first hour. He was in the Melbourne-based band My Coloured Brain as lead vocalist in the mid-90's. He had some very interesting insights into the music scene at that time. Kaleidocast below.

Warren selected tracks by Weezer, Wings, Smashing Pumpkins, Muse and his own band, My Colour Brain.  Check out the re-stream which includes all the music, before it expires! The Kaleidocast contains only the talk with entertaining anecdotes and opinion.

Dwayne then experimented with his selection of classic guitar solo tracks from Lynyrd Skynard, Blue Oyster Cult, Big Country, Metallica, Pendragon and Pink Floyd.
