Modcast #281: I Wanna Be Your Dancemaster

I'm a rug cutter from way back. I can't help but get up and dance when a good song starts spinning. So, this week I'm sharing a bunch of toe tappers, floor scorchers and blistering dance tracks. These are some of favorite songs to dance to. I mean if I had a sprained ankle, a fractured leg and a broken pelvis and one of these songs started playing, I would have to painfully drag myself out onto the dance floor and start struttin' my stuff. So, get out the talcum mods, and put on your dancing shoes and get to shuf-shuf-shuffling.

Modcast #280: Get Under The Covers With Me Baby

Covers, covers, and more covers. Just the thing for a dark and stormy night, or for any old time really. Mr. Suave here, guiding you through the dark, dreary world with little beacons of musical light. Those beacons are ones you've probably heard before. That's right it's another show of all covers. I've the good, the bad, the tributes, the not-so-tributes, and everything else. You know the songs, but you might be surprised at some of the artists. And, this time around you'll get to hear them interpreted in some new ... and uh, ... shall we say, ... interesting ways.
