Castlepalooza festival. Last year was good & your response phenomenal. This year is going to be even better. That's right folks, we're inviting you again to send in your song - folk, techno, death metal, rock, and every other genre from Art Punk to Zulu Pop. In studio this morning with Miriam are two members of a band 'Fight Like Apes', Jamie Fox & Maykay, who will be headlining in the Festival in August.
