Episode #108: Was That Last Set Too Long?

Saturday, January 31st, 2015

A little Cole Porter, a little Coke, a little Chronic, a little Cream. Some covers, some country, some comedy. That’s all the alliteration we have, sorry about that. But we also have violin and folk, some boys and some girls, more music from the Dawn of Sound, and some other music not even one year old yet. And, you know, more. We have our moments.

Download while the price is low! Who knows what might happen in February?

Episode #107: Our Show’s Better Than Their Show

Saturday, January 24th, 2015

And the reason is because we play all the hits! All right, perhaps not, but it’s fun and it’s worth your time. Motown, French pop, calypso, covers, country, stereo lounge, movie music, pop commercials, Beauty and the Beard, an old rocker or two, a Fabs outtake (it’s fun to say that), and a genuine TV theme. Maybe a little more. Please to check it out.

Episode #105: Why Do All the Boys Just Pass Us By?

Saturday, January 10th, 2015

Saturday, January 3rd, 2015

We ease gently into the New Year with some great instrumental and other covers, vintage hip-hop, a beautiful but terribly sad song by Patty Griffin, one-hit wonders from the 70s, 80s, and 30s, music box holiday music, a few pop-tune words from our sponsor, a little folk and country and soul, an unusual vocal version of a well-known TV theme, and a little more still.
