Here's to us

Well 2019 has certainly been one for the history books, eh? 

This is the LAST episode of Wednesdays With Andrew this year, and may well be the last for the foreseeable future as I adjust to life in my new role as deadbeat dad. I will try to cut episodes here and there when I can, but I will literally have my hands full of poop.

To kiss 2019's ass goodbye, we get treated to some fantastic punk (and punkish, of course) rock tunes courtesy of bands like The Bouncing Souls, Twin Peaks, Good Riddance, Sex Pistols, Ignite and a whole lot more.

So, pour yourself some leftover eggnog from 2009, and listen NOW:

Alas, this year I have elected not to do the obligatory Xmas playlist. But most of those songs are kinda stupid anyway, so yeah.
