Well it’s been 10 years listening to Republic Radio FM100,3 in
Thessaloniki. A decade of memories with mates all over town, in the
bus, the car, the port of #skg, on the bike, on the go, generally. The friendships have come alive from behind the airplay hours to the real world happenings, and we all have the same love for Music.

journeys to exquisite music planets. Well if you do tune in, I’m sure you know who I’m talking about…

mysteries in the fresh psychedelic trip/garage/surf/indie/alternative
era. A journey in the “making” of a compilation is a big time consuming process but they never put their heads down, and believed it the most to come true.
