Amazing, I used to live in Birmingham and this takes me right back!
You have to let us know in advance if you have a Leeds UK show - maybe we can help you get the music together.

Hi Hadley,

I'm so glad to hear it! Hope I did your former home justice.

Too bad I hadn't met you back in November because I did a Leeds show back then. You can check it out at:

If you get a chance to listen or look at the playlist, let me know what you think. Did I miss anything big? I'll do a Misses Show someday soon.

Next time you can play the Mighty Lemon Drops - and remember to pronounce it "Birmingum".
For Leeds, I wouldn't miss Cud. There are tons of others, mostly mates of ours (whoa - I just found Salvation and Rose of Avalanche on iTunes).
We listened to the podcasts on a looong road trip and really enjoyed them - cheers!
