Star Time #22: Daddy's House


Who's your daddy? I don't particularly care. But I do care that you have a listen to this Father's Day special edition of Star Time. Since I couldn't find nearly as many positive songs about Dad as I could find about Mom -- or, indeed, too many songs about paternal figures in general -- this is more of a show about people more, let's say, generally identified as fathers or "Daddy." It's a bit complicated. But so are dads. It's still a hoot and a half, and it's got Swamp Dogg.
