Episode 258

I can’t recall which candy bar it was, but years back there was one such treat that advertised itself as “deep, dark, and delicious.” I’d say that applies here as well–though I will offer you tinges of light as we travel along. And the opening cracks me up every time I’ve listened to it. Hey, if I don’t amuse me, I can’t amuse you.

Well, I hadn’t intended to get back to “normal” with an uninterrupted flow, buy by the time I reached a “maybe I stop here” moment, we were a good hour in. So why stop there, right? All Newish tunes, with a turn toward the quieter side once you hit that George L Smyth piece…  Enjoy.
