Episode #264: We’ll Knock Them Over and Then We’ll Get the Guy in Back of Them

Saturday, February 17th, 2018

This week’s trivium is this: our program has music from every decade from the 1940s up through the present EXCEPT FOR ONE. We’re sure you can figure out which one even though there’s no prize for figuring it out. And when you’re not working on that you can listen to hits and flops and covers and alternate versions and all the usual stuff. Fun for the whole family (our family, which of course includes you).
