"Transistor Heart was the name of my imaginary radio show when I was a wee preteen making punk rock mixtapes for my friends. Sharing music remains to be one of my favorites pass times so the tradition continues here with this series. Expect to hear an eclectic blend of genres ranging in style from Space Disco, Library Music to Afro-Psych, Post-Punk, Kraut Rock and beyond"
