Star Time #67: Trespassin'

Today's show starts in the 1950s with Andre Williams getting greasy, Scatman Crothers rockin' it with Roma and all 6½ minutes of Ray Charles' "What'd I Say." We then move on to a piano tuner and an insane guitar solo courtesy of Travis Wammack. Then we do the original Harlem Shuffle and the Duck before settling down in left field. Then we present a final set with, in a sheer programming coincidence, four separate songs about "getting" something, or as the case may be, not getting something.
