December 4th, 2016 - Chances Are...

November 20th, 2016 - An Honest Thanksgiving

It's our Thanksgiving show, but we can't really get into the spirit of giving actual thanks without acknowledging the elephant in the room - the pall that's haning over this country. 2016 has been a really rough year on so many levels, so we talk about how to deal with it and some coping strategies, before we turn to the subject of finding the things it's important to be thankful for.

October 16th, 2016 - National Wear Something Gaudy Day

In this episode, it's all about some of the... questionable fashion rock music has spawned, including Hippie Chic (now called Boho Chic), Punk fashion, and Glam Rock fashion, three genres of rock that, at least when you look back on them now, spawned some rather embarassing clothing choices! Plus, the Reverend confesses both his worst fashion attempts (deliberate or forced upon him) and declares, once and for all, what musical genre did the most to destroy fashion in its era.
