Show 381: Make The Music Pretty

Escape to an alternative universe that is reality free filled with incredibly strange and offbeat music. You will hear Thriftstore disco, moog madness, zany obscuro 45’s that defy genre,corporate sales training musical numbers, easy and cheesy listening, bizarre childrens songs about hot dogs, song poems and other audio oddities. Music scoured from thrift stores, run down record shops, yard sale trash bins, discarded boxes on the side of the road, and even the internet.
