Go Radio’s swan song

This morning I woke up and checked my Instagram feed (as I do) and I saw that Alex (the hottie) from Go Radio had posted a long letter about the band, as had the other accounts from the other members which I follow.

In honour of their amazing music, here is their most iconic song,Goodnight Moon, which Jason will be able to sing to Dee every night now, because he won’t be on the road any longer. I can’t help but respect him for putting his family first, even if it means no more music.

Here is the single Go to Hell, its brilliant
