Star Time #53: Love Jones

Valentine's Day might be over, but you can relive this special edition of Star Time over and over again, like I will for the rest of my life in fevered and disruptive dreams. Slow jams from the '60s and '70s, hosted by a certain Dr. Dimitri Corazon, a "sentimental cardiologist" who reflects the more facile aspects of V-Day and my inability to leave pitch control alone. Alert hip hop historians may recognize a (not so) secret homage to De La Soul Is Dead. Finally, DO NOT show up at the Airport Radisson this weekend expecting to find love. At least not in the conference rooms.
