Girth Radio Presents...

It's that time of year...the calendar has shifted like tectonics (or kinda like technics when the DJ is dropping fire!) and my mind starts longing for Summer like a forlorn lover. My Summer Tradition: I gather those that are close in my life around the shisha pipe and as is our custom...my job is to score the evening. Yo.

Shisha is a community affair...regular cigarette smokers often employ a buddy system but shisha is about community. Everybody has a role and a responsibility within that community to ensure the shisha evening unfolds flawlessly.

And come this Summer...with that eternal delicious energizing burst of Sunshine radiating all that is good and holy and pure in this dark world, banishing winter and facilitating a healing spring: I...as the Shisha DJ will drop this track...I promise.
