SUNDAY SERMON #1 is live


It seemed that the majority of the people that voted in my poll were into the idea of this, so I went and started something I am calling SUNDAY SERMON. Every Sunday, I'll go back a week and add a song from every band that was either posted on the main page or mentioned in the chat. So every week there will be a fresh batch of things to listen to. If you hear something you like, you'll know that it can be found somewhere on the blog within the last week. Sound good? The link will always be to the right, just under the chat. The first one contains 66 songs and clocks in at over 5 hours. If anyone has any other suggestions, feel free to let me know. Spotify seemed to make the most sense to me, but what do I know.
