4/20/17: Some Extra Headspace


This week the Fuzz Factory provided listeners with plenty of headspace for 420. Yes, even more than a typical episode. This week I really stretched it out. Playing almost exclusively long songs. The outer space factor was very present as well. It’s fun to play long songs like these. As you know, I will drop long songs into the show almost every week. However, an entire show? Of course! However, for one to appreciate a whole show of this once must reach inward for some extra headspace.

Here’s the playlist for the Extra Headspace special feature.
