I just wanted to say thanks for taking over Lithium radio in July! You played Tad and they never get any play on that station. The music went great the picnic I went to on the fourth. Do you know which Matt is drumming for Soundgarden when they stop in Tampa next Monday? Glad they're still coming considering what I read last week on you blog.

Glad to hear it, thanks! Yeah, I suspect TAD’s “Jack Pepsi” has never been played on SiriusXM before (and probably never will be again).

I believe Matt Chamberlain is drumming for the entirety of the NIN tour.
