XHM #28 - "Leopard print galoshes" (2010 August 02)

7:17am - 9:01am

Hip hop, funk & rap anchor the soundtrack to Sweet Sweetback's Badassss Song by Melvin van Peebles and Earth, Wind & Fire. Happy British Columbia Day! I grew up with the more generic Civic Holiday name.

The host of the show before mine threw me on air early, where we talked about citrus. I've grabbed a few minutes from that show so you can witness the highly improvised banter and then revel in the glory it is of likely rarely hearing that again.
