Steel Belted Free Range

Steel Belt­ed Radio’s last hoorah! We kicked things off on Sep­tem­ber 11, 2003, and with the help of some great co-hosts and amaz­ing guests, we man­aged to keep rolling until June 1, 2017. It was a hell of a lot of fun. On this, the last episode, the longest-serv­ing co-hosts, T‑Bar & KK made a sur­prise appear­ance, and just like the old days, we played some new music, clas­sics from back-in-the-day, some out there T‑Bar picks, and heard a pile of T‑Bar’s jokes. Thanks to every­one who tuned in to this show or any show. We were blessed to have some amaz­ing sup­port and encour­age­ment over the years. We wish Skip­py all the best as he takes over and makes Thurs­days his own.
