Groovin’ Blue XMAS 2017 Show #1

Well, he's done it again . . . that rascally DJZigZag is nowhere to be seen around the WAGRadio studios.  Is he in warmer climes during this the festive season?  One thing's fo' sure - Bro' Zig really does need the rest after another full plated year of producing and hosting the station's flagship program Groovin' Blue [with another one to come before 2018]. 

2018 will see the continuing celebration of the 50th anniversary of Groovin' Blue's existence or should that be endurance / perseverance?  Now we feel bad 'cuz we're puttin' typed words in the Zagster's mouth - we know it's been nothin' but a crowned labour of love for the lad.  25,000 downloads of the show's episodes over the last 10 podcasted years attest to its audience success.

So without adooing further we here at WAGRadio present the annual harmonius, upbeat musically festooned benefaction - the Groovin' Blue Xmas Show.  Intro-ing the melodic jump-up will be DJZigZag's lifelong pal Sunny "Sweet Daddy Fonk" Wong.  Glad he stayed around and handled the chores.
