Andy Susemihl

[20.05.18]

In his show on Sunday 20 May, David chatted to Andy Susemihl (pictured) with tracks from Andy’s new album ‘Elevation’.  Reviewing for www.getreadytorock.com David gave the album a 5/5 rating commenting “This is an album that grabs you from the start and engages until the last note.  It must surely “elevate” Susemihl amongst his peers, and – frankly –  not before time.”

The hour special includes tracks from the album plus other career highlights.
