Episode #203: We Did Four Years. Can We Do Five? Place Your Bets.

Saturday, November 26th, 2016

We start our fifth year of internetting with more tributes (because tributes will always be with us) plus more of our favorites. One of us and several of you have birthdays, and that’s always nice. Most of us have had a big meal and watched a lot of television by now so it’s time for something different. Music and leftovers. Please download this. I hope we didn’t do all this work on a holiday for nothing.

Episode #201: Father, Daughter, Music, Chat, Infinity

Saturday, November 12th, 2016

If you thought we were done after 200 episodes, think again. We kept on going and you’ll have to put up with us for a while longer. This week we have another rarity from Kate and Anna, alternates, covers, an answer song pair, two songs with the word “U” in the title, a therapy session, and lots more. Every decade from the 1930s through to present day (except one) is represented here. Such variety you will not find with Sixties on Six, so please stick with us instead. We have always depended on the kindness of strangers.

Episode #200: We’ve Been Good but We Can’t Last

Saturday, November 5th, 2016

The week we surprise ourselves by reaching 200 episodes, a number so vast that chimpanzees have no word for it in their language. We celebrate with contributions from listeners, a visit from two longtime show hangers-on, music from some of our favorite artists and styles, many versions of one song, at least one foreign language, and more chat than reasonable for a music-and-chat show. We end up with the longest program we’ve ever done, and now we’re exhausted. You should download it and listen to it. Take your time, come back to it whenever you want, it will remember your place. Thanks and all that.
