CLA Radio 08/26/16: The States


The next ConservativeLA Radio show will be about these United States; that is, 50 songs for 50 states, Obama Math notwithstanding.

Why, you ask? To show @talkradio200 that it can be done right. Long story. 😉

All songs (one item is a comedy bit instead of a song) have a state name in the title, except for one. See if you can guess, without cheating, why the state of Washington is represented by The Kingsmen–other than the fact that there aren’t many decent songs about Washington state, for some reason.

When: Friday, August 26, 2016, 6:00 PM Pacific/9:00 PM Eastern.

Where: Duane FM in the Hughniverse.

Spotify playlist is here.
