IR Orlando #13: Sending 2006 Out With a Bang
Well, well, well… It’s episode 13 at long last! Sorry for the long delay. I didn’t intend to take quite that long of a break between shows. I recently started a new job which takes a lot of time and energy, not to mention a week away for training and then I picked up a nasty virus that I’m only just getting over after almost 3 weeks (and a bout of total laryngitis at one point too!). This show is a bit harder rocking than most of my shows – I happened to have a number of submissions with a hard edge, so I thought I’d wrap them up into one face-melting, ass-kicking package to send 2006 out with a bang!
