Ian!!! Bad ass!!! I’m a Native from New Mexico. Santa Clara Pueblo (1of the Eight Northern Pueblos) in northern New Mexico. Always tune in to your show. Been a metal head since 1975 when I was 4 my uncle put on Black Sabbath (the song Black Sabbath to boot) and I was hooked. Been banging my head every since.
