Ep45 Radios and Gladiators

February 24th, 2020

We have no idea why, but for some reason we travel back in time to cover radios of old. Then, the Jeep Gladiator has been in the news this last week, some good, some bad, some funny. We talk about whether this truck has a future or not. And big updates on #johnnyorangespegasus and #projectexcursion. And we say our farewells to Holden.
