Booney is at my Round Table of Amazing Souls

It is no doubt that Clint Boon has been an influential musician and keyboard icon as part of the Inspiral Carpets. His natural and authenticity hands down stands on its own. As a presenter for RadioX BBC Manchester and this amazing and artful podcast his first hand music knowledge and appreciation is infectious. He is a proud father and husband and is really engaging with everyone he interacts with. These podcasts are valuable art and culture and Clint is at my round table of old souls because of this. I've had the pleasure of tweeting into his Drivetime show on xFm and his humor and outlook is inspiring. I'm a life long fan and I hope to see the band in the U.K. One day!!! Sincerely Mrs. Laura Nikas Amesbury MA USA #boonarmy
