Radio Redux – Season 4 (2009)

Radio Redux SEASON 4 – 2009
The 2009 series saw things the show settle into a new kind of format, the tendancy for every episode to be "The [Something Or The Other] Show" kicked in for instance. Whilst following a long battle, Echo Hawk got her Visa, moved to the UK and got married to AAUK! There was the tenth anniversary of the Dreamcast, a pair of drunken visitors gatecrash the show and a man with a puppet did as well…
