The December 2022 episode of Emmas_Housemusic brings my indiepop radio show as a regular series of monthly listeners-digest-features to an end, at least for now. I know, it’s never say never, so I won’t, but for the time being, there will be no further episodes. I’m not sure what Mixcloud is going to do with the uploaded shows if you don’t go Pro, which under the circumstances made no sense to me.

As far as goodbyes go, I’ll let the show speak for itself and will just add my heartfelt thanks to all of you. Take care.
