Episode 16: Songs in an Hour

We made a promise back in Episode 15, and now it’s time to make good on that promise! This week we look at “Song in an Hour”, its history and some of the results of those”hours”, with finished products like “Surfers Paradise The Musical” (not from the book – GASP!), “Kevin Bacon” (also not in the book – DRAMATICALLY DRAWS BREATH!) and “Boggyman” (is in book – EXHALES). A wonderful portal into a bygone era of Tripod.

Speaking of bygone eras – Tripod have vacuumed the club house and discovered endless hidden merch-gems. Many in formats that are STILL VALID TODAY! Gatesy starts a business as a result… (you can hit it up RIGHT HERE).
