Sorry for the long hiatus. After getting back from New Orleans, I got hammered with work and am only now getting back ahead of it. To make up for the prolonged absence, I super-sized this episode with 13 tracks, including songs I brought home from NOLA.

As I mentioned in the show, here’s the Guardian playlist I prepped re: David Axelrod and you can see the cover of Afreaka! above.
