Join us, won’t you, for a Blast from the Past. From the days when NTAPS was just a balding fat man in a dining room with a £50 USB microphone. To be fair, not much has changed except the cost of the microphone and the location the bobbins takes place in. We’ve done our best with the audio, and it sounds much better. So relax, have a drink (the stronger the better) and wrap your lug ‘oles round Not The AmericanPrög Show 16 Remastered. A virtual festival, playing listeners’ choices.
