Episode #138: Wake Up, Brush Your Teeth, Wash Your Face, Comb Your Hair

Saturday, August 29th, 2015

We end August with a few major and minor hits, some totally new music and some totally old forgotten music, plus covers, commercials, a ballad or two, a theme song or two, and other things that were burning holes in our list. The Doctor suggests that you listen. It won’t harm you in any important way and it might even help you.

Episode #137: Serving the Hooch in Paper Cups

Saturday, August 22nd, 2015

If we include Gibberish as a language, this week’s program has songs in four different languages. You’ll hear songs about madness, about dancing, and about soft drinks. You’ll sing along with songs about water and summer and sweethearts, songs about rainbows, rats, and roller coasters. You’ll thrill to songs about togetherness, about dusk, about birds, and about even more than that. And we chat both your ears off. (Just a metaphor! No cause for alarm.) Please download our little effort and play it on your little device. We thank you kindly.

Episode #134: A Little Web Is Cute, but a Big Web Is Wise

Saturday, August 1st, 2015

The summer is half-over. Well, boo-hoo. It doesn’t matter because the year-round music and chat continue with a show including songs sung in foreign languages other than French. Otherwise it’s pretty much the same as usual: instrumentals, soul, hip-hop, folk, karaoke, covers, spiders, Coke commercials, answer songs, and more. But not too much of anything in particular, because we don’t want you to change the channel. Stick with us here, on channel…something. Download us and stick with us. We’ve been sticking it out for years now.
