Episode #278: Hey, Everybody, It’s Summertime!

Saturday, May 26th, 2018

It isn’t really summertime yet but it’s close enough for government work. If you listen this week you can hear a few songs that allude to summer in some way, and many more songs that don’t mention summer at all but that are also interesting. And you know that it’s in the back of everyone’s mind anyway. Regulars and irregulars both, all types of listeners are welcome and invited to download. There’s still time!
