Quite the international lineup we have this week, jetting in from the Caribbean is Rich Hilton where he's installing a studio in a luxury hotel, Mark Tinley is on the naughty step, while his family fight off the Swine Flu - don't worry, they are fine, PJ Tracy fits us in to his busy schedule composing for film and tv, and Chris McLeod steps in as the other half of GForce software.

After reports from Rich in paradise and Mark in purgatory - get well soon everyone -  we jump right in with the history of boom boxes as documented by Pocketcalculatorshow.com, then we ponder the significance of thew Rock Band Network - which allows bands to submit their own material for purchase through the game. After which we take a look at some of the highlights from last weekend's Summer NAMM session in Nashville including the Akai mini controllers, then everybody is wowed by the Tara Bush Pilfershire Lane boxed set limited edition, then we discuss the showbiz aspect of instrument presentation and the like.


This week, Nick sticks with the Røde Procaster, a dynamic mic with more than a nod to the looks of the classic ElectroVoice RE20, - we're waiting for some more mice to try out, hopefully next week,. Thanks to SourceDistribution.co.uk for lending us this to check out.
