Favoriting December 22, 2016: THIS IS NOT MY SHOW.
At least most of it is not. Somehow I screwed up and my show doesn't come on until halfway through. It's great music from the Drummer Stream but not what is listed in the playlist. Sorry.

Ahh, Louis, and all is extra well.
Peculiar...RealPlayer(!) info kept switchin' back and forth, giving me the track ID from the unheard playlist and then back to the track ID of the Drummer auto-stream track, even while auto-stream sound was assertin' itself entirely. Title tug o' war.

Love Sidney Bechet, great to have the show back!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:19pm

Bechet is one of those musicians who put so much energy into the notes, the needle almost jumped out of the grooves.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:35pm

Ah, Miss Albert and one of the greatest single-entendre songs of all time.
