Star Time #59: Get In My Bag



Maybe it's just me–actually it's usually just me–but I felt that since moving Star Time to the South Puget Sound Branch Office, the show might've gotten a little soft. Which is fine, nobody warms up to a squishy ballad like me, but either way it was time for an all-funk edition just to shake off the cobwebs. We got it all this week: O.G. funk, Latin funk, socially conscious funk, even full-on Marxist funk for those who want to get their dialectical materialism on. Where my proletariat at??
