Star Time #57: Pour the Corn

It's another one of those shows that's a product of Star Time's ledger balancing act. Noting that I've dwelled almost exclusively in the '60s and '70s for a number of months, this episode spends about the first 40 minutes in the '50s, before settling into a nice '60s groove to finish out the show. So if your boomer grandparents have been shaking their bifocals in the general direction of this website lately, tell them to sit back, relax, and enjoy a jar of XXX-moonshine while I blast the hits into their hearing aids.
