Exploding Head Movies Episode August 18, 2014

XHM #227 - "Exult, O shores, and ring, O bells! Your fearful trip is done" (2014 August 18)

7:00pm - 9:00pm

In light of the recent death of actor comedian Robin Williams (1951-2014), this episode profiles a plethora of music from his long varied career.

Depression is a messy old fog to get stuck in; it's sad to hear that Williams couldn't cope his demons especially in light of the recent diagnosis of early onset Parkinson's. If you feel this way, you are not alone and don't be afraid to ask for help.
