Star Time #48: This Year

Welcome to the new year. I'm at a loss for resolutions, except for a solemn vow to continue bringing the funk on the expressway to your hot soul, and to floss more often. The first show of 2018 features a bunch of songs with the word "year" in their titles, and one more that mentions the calendar. Yeah. I went there. The second hour dispenses with the arbitrary construct of time, eventually pondering whether the concept of "Miami" is fluid or static. I'm surprised nobody is talking about that. Happy new year.
