Donita Sparks Record Release Party posterHey everybody, Fini Finito here, Donita’s Digital Roadie. Donita caught a flight to Brazil yesterday and so I am filling in for her today while she does a couple of shows there tonight and tomorrow night. I’ve got the second part of her podcast with her Goddess of Thunder Lady Dee Plakas wherein they play for us four more tracks off Transmiticate. If you missed the first part last week you can listen to it here.

I’ll be in comments to hang out for a while and don’t forget to visit Donita’s new website where you can purchase your own copy of Transmiticate, and if you want you can even get a copy of the disc signed by Donita from there! Also, for folks in Southern California, don’t forget her record release party is next Friday at Safari Sam’s in Hollywood on Leap Day, February 29th! The show will also stream live on the Internet from the Safari Sam’s website and Donita’s website too.
