Episode 175: Summer, Jam

THIS is a summer jam.

Episode 175: Summer, Jam (3365) 
(Featuring a selections of seasonally appropriate songs, selected by our long-lost, unstuck-in-time co-host, DJ Really Sloppy.)

While the idea of doing a summer show seemed like a good idea at the time, it turned out that this week, I had nothing.  Not a single idea for songs about summer, outside of just listening to surf music.  Fortunately, my good friend DJ Really Sloppy accidentally called me, and babbled for about an hour about what he thinks of when he hears the term “Summer Jam.”  The results are this program.

From Ricardo Wang’s very own missive about the show:

“Start celebrating Independence on Sat.

The Revolution Was Not Televised, but It Is STILL Being Broadcast.”
