Episode #231: Turbines to Speed!

Saturday, June 24th, 2017

It’s the first weekend of summer but it’s no big deal. All the seasons blend together when you’re in this business. We finish one and then we’re on to the next. Wait, are we talking about seasons or about episodes of Your Favorite Podcast? Both, I guess. But we have a moment to tell you that this one has a little tribute, a nod to Bob’s Nobel speech, piano players of all sorts, lyrics that children should not hear, some movie music, and a gimmick or two, plus a little more. Please yourselves (and us too) with your gracious downloads.

Episode #228: Another Sleepy Dusty Scotch Plains Greenpoint Day

Saturday, June 3rd, 2017

June comes in like a lion, busting out all over, and we love a Gershwin tune, but we have none for you today (sorry). Instead you’ll hear songs from olden days and songs from two weeks ago. Also you’ll hear songs about cats (actually one song and one cat, over and over), plus covers and instrumentals and outtakes and listener favorites and even an actual listener or two. Music we’ve never played before, and chat we’ve never chatted before, and probably never will again. Lend us your ears. Thank you kindly.
