Episode #190: Our Most Loverly Program Ever

Saturday, August 27th, 2016

This week we play a lot of show tunes and a lot of one tune in particular. You’ll hear a little operetta, a cover or two, TV music, plus songs about marriage and about getting pinned, and you’ll visit the Trophy Train again. Plus more. Lots of chocolate for you to eat. Start eating.
