Episode #151: This Day Comes but Once a Year

Saturday, November 28th, 2015

One of us celebrates a birthday, the other doesn’t. Otherwise it’s business as usual: funk, hip-hop, pop, folk, foreigners, country, TV music, Gordo, commentary on the state of popular culture, and other examples of low-key self-indulgence. You get what you pay for but we think it’s worth the price that you pay.
