Episode #117: Us, a Name We Call Ourselves

This week’s program has some Python, “gypsy jazz”, show tunes, John Denver, The Muppets, and Coke. You’ll hear new music (new!) from Courtney Barnett, Van Morrison, Benmont Tench, and Nellie McKay. There’s some slightly older music from Drake and Norah Jones, and some even older music from Andy Williams, American Graffiti, and Neal Hefti. Plus a little acappella, a little soul, and a little more. It’s a garden-variety show but our garden has a lot of variety. We would be pleased to have you as a listener.
