Episode 234

Seems like there are only so many ways I can tell you that a show is filled with great music. Yet here I am again, writing about how this episode starts with a couple albums that caught my ear and made me mention them on social media, and how the flow nudges its way over toward darkness, and how the Library section of the show found me digging deep into the shelves to pull together a pretty smooth ride. That’s all I’ve got to say about that. Enjoy.

There has been so much good music flowing in lately, I decided we should just kick back and listen to a lot of it. Then I decided we’d do it without my getting in your ears until the end. Launch and groove, people.
