PMB223: Reptile Ruckus (Bernard Herrmann, Bernard Gerard, G Gekko, Acidic Glitter, Henry Mancini, Les Bass Harmonistes, Alan Haven, Stelvio Cipriani, Tipsy, Herbie Hancock)

PMB223: Reptile RuckusHaving previously wrestled with snakes and amphibians, we thought it time to complete the trilogy with a show all about the rest of the cold-blooded family of critters.

We have giant lizards, crocodiles, alligators, turtles, an iguana, a chameleon and even something about the antipodean tuatara.
