Podcast for The Whizbanger all-covers takeover for The Global Onslaught 17 July 2020

Boy Howdy, was that ever fun! I dedicated most of the songs today to different deejays. I still haven’t heard back from any of them about how well I did; should I assume it was bombtastic? Utterly forgettable? Aflame with the ashes of a dumpster fire? Whatever. I had fun! Did you?
