CLA Radio 05/13/16: Hughniverse After Dark (repeat)


The next ConservativeLA Radio show (on Duane FM in the Hughniverse, Friday, 05/13/16, 6:00 Pacific/9:00 Eastern) will reach way back into the CLAR archives, pull out show #69 from September 2013, and dive into the wonderful world of cool/ballad/torch jazz and associated whatnot.

As I wrote then, “Great music, amazingly silly sound clips, and the most ridiculous collection of set announcements in the history of the show. Be there or be like, nowhere, daddy-o!” And they are still the most ridiculous collection of set announcements in the history of the show.

Hope you can stop by, listen to the show, and join us in chat.

No Spotify playlist for this one, sorry.
