Episode #186: The Indisputable Leader of the Gang

Saturday, July 30th, 2016

This week we start with a signature tune (not ours, we don’t have one) and we end with a TV cartoon theme (we don’t have one of those, either). In between, our conversation is preserved as if in amber, together with some country music, plus folk, pop, jazz, covers, and more including another visit to the Trophy Train. They’re all excellent choices. We wouldn’t be allowed to say that if it weren’t true. That’s the law. Or it should be. So please download and listen.

Episode #185: Don’t Let Yourself Forget, Tune Up Your Internet

Saturday, July 23rd, 2016

A lot of “blessings” this week. Sometimes it just turns out that way. No matter. It’s still an hour and a half that you won’t regret spending, as long as you make dinner or do the laundry while listening. Hear many genres and entertaining styles, but nothing recorded before we were born! That’s the truth (barely). For a change. Please download and listen to these bits.
