Episode #252: We Find Adventure Everywhere

Saturday, November 25th, 2017

It’s back to the old grind for us, for you, for everyone: movie music, TV music, folk and pop, rhythm and blues, covers, too many versions, languages other than English that are hard to understand and even harder to speak, music older than all of us and other music younger than your neighbor’s new baby who won’t stop crying. This is our stop along the way. The world is our friend. Especially if we get a few downloads. There’s no money in it for us but we like to please. Pleasure, that’s our currency.
