(on Rock'n'Soul Radio stream)
An exhausted rogue jollied up by drink -- toothless, deaf, melancholic, shaky on his pins, full of dope, and quite idle --Father Flot is, nevertheless, ready to lay back, think of England, and rock out at least one more time with his merry band of chatroom Flotbots in celebration of Episode # 100 of Flot's Spot. Come for the toons and tomfoolery; stay for ruminations on lonely coaling stations, tract-home chippies, and the Peterson-Kekich Swap.
