Do It, Play The Blondie

Well hello, it's the 100th broadcast of No Magic! Somehow, two and bit years passed us by just like that. Alas, we cannot celebrate with a big old party at Studios in The Secret Alley, because we are still broadcasting in isolation. And while that is a bit of a shame, when compared to the past bombast we've enjoyed when hitting these milestones with Eclectic Kettle,  that won't prevent marking the occasion as best we can.

Tonight features some tunes from the new NewDad EP Waves, which came out just last month, and then otherwise the playlist runs wild with indie disco feel-good times from my past.

Join me, some will be explained.
