This week we will play more rock than we usually do. Don't worry, we will play other genres too and we won't play much loud rock, because we know that many of you don't like it so much.

Thanks to all of you who came last week to our website to vote. We hope you will help us to find a Song of the Week winner also this week by casting your vote on our website.

Last Friday, April the 29th, my door bell rang and I got a nice surprise, a band from my home town Groningen came to bring me their brand new album. I will start the programme with the first single taken from that album.
