Star Time #20: Pay to the Piper


I'd call this a "pot-pourri" if that didn't make me think of inedible flowers and quiz-show categories. All four of our professed decades get at least some coverage in #20. Highlights include mellow saxophones, love-pugilism metaphors, the Boogaloo, a vulture, a penguin, P-Funk once removed, and Harold Alexander's amazing attempt to sing along to his own flute solo. The goods, brought.

Originally broadcast on rainiervalleyradio.world on May 29, 2017.
