Episode #218: Heat Won’t Pass from a Cooler to a Hotter

Saturday, March 18th, 2017

Hey, look, this one is pretty good! It has music you might not have heard, several different musical genres, music that spans the decades, humor, excitement, nostalgia, comedy, some of our favorites and maybe some of yours too (though that’s less important to us). We hope you’ll make time in your busy schedule for it. We did, you know. So download, please.

Episode #217: Our Personal Point of View

Saturday, March 11th, 2017

This week we feature music from the 1960s and other decades too, but mostly from the 1960s because that’s when we grew up, honest. There’s more of Meredith Willson reading The Music Man to us, and some movie music, and some old soul and new pop and even bagpipes, plus a lot more. And we have a visit from longtime show hanger-on Wes. It’s our St. Patrick’s Day episode! But we completely forgot that was coming up (because we don’t really care), so no Irish music for you this week, but you can get that any time. We violate the rules of seasonal music. So, please to download and listen.
