We start off with an amazing live performance of Gaz's Surf Rock band the Rumble-O's live from the Cube in Bristol where they are setting up for a gig playing the soundtrack to 1960;s surf film, Endless Summer.

Then we attempt to follow that with a panel discussion starting with the new Phenol desktop semi modular synth, then a quick chat about Christmas songs, Boomstars filter come to Eurorack, the new Roland AIRA TR-8 7X7 sound pack and finally in interesting debate on the merits of a real orchestra or sample instruments.
