COBWEBS AND STRANGE #120: SHORT CUTS [2019-07-16]

Ronnie Carnwath

[PODCAST]

The idea behind this started a long time ago – 20 years to be precise, when I made my first “120 Seconds Or Less” compilation tape. Within a few months, I had made no fewer than five of the buggers! I thought it would be nice to bring it all up to date without looking at the original tapes. Looking back over said tapes, only 13 songs were included. Cover star is the wonderful actor Elmore Rual “Rip” Torn Jr, who passed away recently.
