PODCAST #257:  Obsolete

It is weird how audio formats go the way of the Do Do bird and then resurface 10 years or so later.  It happened with vinyl and now cassettes are making an interesting comeback.  Is it a nostalgia thing or a way to get improved audio quality.  The sad thing is that one of the best audio qualities (CD's) are now looking to become obsolete.  Join Genghis and Ragman as they discuss this topic as well as the pro's and cons of streaming music.  Next the boys welcome back Spread Eagle/UFO bassist Rob De Luca to discuss Spread Eagle's first new record in 26 years, Subway to the Stars.  Rob discusses the addition of guitarist Ziv Shalev and how difficult it was to replace original guitarist Paul Dibartolo.  He also discusses the bands future plans as well as the final UFO tour.
