Greetings and welcome to this week’s audio update! Thought we’d break away from the airchecks this week and present some blooper reels. We have had 6 reels worth given to us in the last couple of weeks, and today we’re throwing caution to the wind and presenting each one of them in their entirety! These were about to be trashed when a great mate spotted a post on facebook from the owner that if no one wanted them they were going to scrap. We got to them just in time!
