Doc's out of town for Episode 29

Dr Groove has been out of town and
Master Move hasn't been around.
Professor Smooth selected the tracks,
artists, info & the facts.

But the Doc is not yet back,
We'll have to wait a little longer,
Coz together we have the knack,
To make show better, faster, stronger.

We're sorry for the delays,
Please wait a few more days,
For a Podcast really fine,
Called SG29.
