60s psych blowout: farewell show for Haim

Coloured Glass (AKA Haim) will host his last Astral Traveling tonight (although he may fill in from time to time in the future). Expect to hear some of his favorite 60s psych tracks, as usual. It was fun while it lasted....big thanks to Sesqui, everyone at KBOO, and all the listeners out there!
