Tweaked for your Listening Pleasure

Just a bit of news today. First thing first, Tweaked for your Listening Pleasure has officially opened although there is a lot of work left to do in its actual planning. It is currently playing loads of things you likely never heard of before and in future, will have some shows from people you do not care about.
