Episode #177: Apple Trees and Honey Bees and Snow-White Turtle Doves

Sunday, May 29th, 2016

Better late than never. That’s what we say whenever we’re late, and we’re sure you agree. Consider the alternative. Luckily, instead of no program at all, we’ll tell you what you really really want: you want to hear a long-overdue happy song plus brand new hits, technological marvels, country, Coke, a visit to the supermarket, covers, soul, and even more. We give you the answer that you endorse. We’re always on a steady course. Download it before the weekend gets away from you. You’re welcome.
