Episode #155: Empty the Ashtrays, Get Out Some Ice

Saturday, December 26th, 2015

We triumph over unreliable software to bring you another fine music and chat selection. Ignore the clumsy edits and concentrate on the covers, the sad songs, the party songs, the early music, the classical, and the extremely modern music. Our gamble, as always: we like it, so you’ll like it too. Take a chance.
