ETHEREAL MAGIC – TONY MONSON with JUNE FURLONG
We don't often 'blow our own trumpet' here on Solar Radio (mainly because the synthesiser seems to have taken over!), but the mouthpiece will be fitted this evening when our 'Morning Mayhem' man,TONY MONSON, is studio guest with JUNE FURLONG to play tracks from the ETHEREAL MAGIC album that he compiled for Expansion Records, and currently zooming up the charts. So 'June In' for those Timeless Rhythms from 6.00 - 8.00pm this evening.
