Bye Bye to the Blog!

You'll have noticed that I've become rather slack in the last few weeks, with regards to updating the playlists Blam Jam Blog.

This is due to lots of other busy goings on and the increase of my Mixcloud
page for the show, so with that in mind, I'm going to give the blog for Blam Jam
a natural break as such.

There will still be updates now and again for articles and interviews, though
regular playlists will now cease from here onwards.

Though in no way does that mean the end for Blam Jam as a whole
on CSR FM, as after a break this Sunday for Easter, it will be back on April the 12th, filled as always with soulful rhythms and amusing asides,
and the Mixcloud uploads will carry on as well with track details.

Thanks for reading, and you'll stay listening won't you?
