Hi Folks, life is what happens when you are making other plans. was supposed to start a new series in September, but as I will explain in January, other things happened.

For now, this is a show I did as a guest presenter at CC Chapmans in November 2008 just before the elections in the United States, the result you already know.

Click on the bar below for the once off show

In hindsight and looking to the future, some may feel that change has not come fast enough - but remember the addage

"Campaign in Poetry, Govern in Prose"

Nothing to do with surfing, but I felt it was worth doing at the time.

Music in the show from our old friends here at WSR

  • The Camels –
  • Leaf –
  • Don McClosky –
  • Tilly and the Wall –
  • Tingsek –
  • Hope regular listeners enjoy it, as I said it is political, not surf related, but WSR is kinds the counter balance to Surfer mags podcast.
