Episode #116: For You We’re Just an Ornament

Saturday, March 28th, 2015

Our bookends this week are the English Music Hall and The Simpsons. In between we have exotica and jazz and funk and samba, folk and Coke and guitars and hip-hop, TV and country and two talking heads. Nothing special. By that we mean that all our episodes are special, which is the same as saying that none of them are. But we request your downloads anyway. They keep us going.
