48: Chinese Fire Drill

    47: Hooked Again

    Another Monday bonus! This one's is like those annual episodes of Friends where they all have flashbacks and remember things from previous episodes. Only I'm the only "friend" and all the flashbacks are songs I've played recently. But these are some of the best ones; songs that have managed to stick in my brain well after the show is over. Hopefully, they'll do the same for you.

      42: A Sweet Evil Thing

      Very late tonight. I got stuck in PetSmart talking to this crazy cat lady for-freakin-ever! That's my excuse for a late episode: cornered by a crazy cat lady! Of course, the more I think about it, the more I wonder if I'm not the crazy cat guy.

      Anyway, good show tonight despite the delays. And the big flub in the third break (it's no longer if I flub, but when; if you had 28 minutes and 54 seconds in the pool this week, you're the big winner!). Well, at least the music is great. And relatively free of cats.
