Star Time #71: '70s Summer Party!


Kicking off another season with a party featuring summer R&B hits of the 1970's. Everything goes right. Except for the diet soda shortage, the key party, the '70s fad injury, the incorporation of roller skates, and whatever the hell Dr. Dimitri Corazon is doing in the fourth act. I plead insanity. It's always nice to have that in your back pocket.

(Star Time is taking next week off. New episodes resume the week of July 9.)
