Episode #208: The Things That Really Matter Don’t Mix with Idle Chatter

It feels like Sunday, doesn’t it? Sure it does, just humor us. Download this and you’ll hear some creative covers, lilting banjo, music that appeared in movies and television, jazz and show tunes and country and lots more. If we were getting paid for this we might try harder to cajole you, but we’ve worked hard enough already. It’s good, all right? We have testimonials. Start the New Year right and maybe you’ll send us one too.
