Episode #374: C’mon, Life Is Funny

Welcome to our first quarantine episode, recorded in two studios at the same time in entirely different states. We did it before and we can do it again, so we did. This week we have a tribute to Kenny Rogers, a lot of quiet music, a little bit of raucous music, a couple two three covers, and lots of our usual stuff. Dig in and pass it on (it’s completely safe). And thanks for your ears, all you Listeners and Romans and Countrymen.
