Episode #304: Everybody Doesn’t Like Something

Saturday, November 24th, 2018

But there really is something for everyone to like in this week’s program. We made all the choices by ourselves, and by now you know us so you know what to expect, and here it is. Covers, show tunes, movie music, TV music, old stuff, new stuff, chuckles, deep thoughts, and even more. It’s a holiday weekend and we made this for you instead of enjoying ourselves. Please try it.

Sometimes we’re so busy choosing tracks that we don’t turn on our microphones for a long time, and you get lonely. That happened this week but it won’t happen again. We know you’re here both for the music and for the chat. It’s like a contract except that it has no legal status and is completely unenforceable. Still, we mean well. We want you to hear all this great TV music and hit records and covers and standards and everything else. It’s all there.
