Colour It Beautiful...

Welcome friends to Oracle 148.  We must be zipping through this year at quite the fantastic rate.  It started off as a "business as usual" sort of show that quickly morphed into a thematic one (colour).  Go with the flow, one never knows where life is going to take you.  Even with something as small as this here show.  Wash yourself in radiant colour...tune in and turn on by downloading here: and follow along with the play list.  As a sweet treat for you I'll provide the link for the Chemistry Sets single, Seeing Upside Down from their newest album This Day Will Never Happen Again.  Enjoy, it's free!
