Episode #129: After Six Hours of School We’ve Had Enough for the Day

Saturday, June 27th, 2015

We hit the radio dial and turn it up all the way. Not really, but volume has never been our thing. We have to crank up our own volume just to be heard. Listen and hear us chat about the songs we play that are drawn from every decade from the 1940s up to the present day. Except for one decade. We won’t tell you what that is. We think it’s an excellent assortment anyway.

Episode #128: Spread Sunshine All Over the Place, Blah, Blah, Blah

Sunday, June 21st, 2015

It’s our Father’s Day episode! But we scarcely mention fathers or daughters at all. No matter. Hear show tunes, movie music, TV music, pop, Snoop, and a genuine Billboard 100 hit. Listen to Hayley Mills, Kate and Anna, and The Beach Boys, oh my goodness! Learn about Coke from a creditable source, hear music in a language that’s neither English nor French, and maybe even hear Tico-Tico again (we’re not done with it yet). Cheap at half the price. We’re sitting here waiting for your download. Please.

Episode #127: Here Comes Your Baby, of Whom You Should Take Good Care

Saturday, June 13th, 2015

Another weekend, another 90 minutes of musical variations bound loosely together with marginally-related chit and chat. We’re a little quieter this time but you’ll still hear some blistering guitar licks from Richard Thompson plus too many covers of the same 60s song. Plus we play even more 60s songs, and some TV music and some four-hands piano music. Oh, and silly songs and country songs and rap songs and ballads and it’s all good. And we did it quickly and we didn’t complain! And neither will you, if you’ll just download it and listen. We wouldn’t dream of wasting your time or ours.

Episode #126: Velvet Gown, Pink Lapel

Saturday, June 6th, 2015

We play our favorite music for you so that you won’t have to guess what we like. This time we have some choice instrumentals, some movie music that you young folks will enjoy, and covers! (Always with the covers.) You’ll also hear a show tune, two versions of an uncomfortable Goffin/King song, oldies, newies, goodies, a little TV music, Tico-Tico, Bob and Ray, Drake, and a little more. That should hold you for a while, provided you download it and listen. For goodness’ sake, give us a minute to catch our breath now, will you please?
