Episode #239: Simmering with a Rich Protein Stew

Saturday, August 19th, 2017

This week we have more of the same stuff that we’ve been doling out for years, and that’s a good thing because after all this time our idiosyncrasies are your idiosyncrasies. You’ve been here before, we’re sure of it. NO ONE NEW IS READING THIS but we’re content with you lot, and thanks for listening. Low-flying birds, that’s what we are. We have fun.

Episode #238: You Haven’t Been Around Since Way Last June

Saturday, August 12th, 2017

Our manifesto, unchanged since 2012: play a DJ game, make it up as we go along, music a little music, talk a little talk, and share our idiosyncrasies with friends and strangers until they shut us down or take us away. People of the future will have this to remember us by. Perhaps Madame Curie did more for mankind but we have feelings too. Please download this and listen to it and enjoy it. That’s really not too much to ask.
