Next week at this time, dear friends and valued listeners, we will have a new president. For this we rejoice! But one thing about bad times, political, economic, or what have you, is that they engender artistic creativity. There was SO MUCH great music about the soon-to-be-out-the-door George W. Bush that will cease to be topical as of next Tuesday, and if you listen to this show with any frequency, you know that we've played a bit of it over the last eight years...thus, we present tonight's experiment, presided over by all three of us.
