In ancient times, hundreds of years before the dawn of history, there was Not The AmericanPrög Show. 90 minutes of the finest music, that wasn’t from any of the Americas.

But then, due to a combination of factors, NTAPS 2.0 was born. No more the doubt and desolation of 90 minutes. From thence forth there would be 120 tumescent minutes every week gently inserted into the listening public’s ears. Would they cry for more? If they did their pleas would fall onto the ground like angrily-discarded soup onto sand at a soft play centre.

For now you have 2 hours, listening public. Enjoy.
