I think that the most fun in putting together this podcast was getting the help of 8 people in putting it together. Because of the time constraint of an audio CD of 80 minutes, there will, of course, be a Volume 2. The dilemma? Trying to decide which tracks go on Volume 1. There were plenty of agreements (It Seems To Hang On, Is It Still Good To Ya?) but there were also a few debates (By Way Of Love’s Express, Found A Cure). Shoutouts go to Greg V, DJ, Shelton, Mike P., Ricky Mac, Mike E.,T Grundy, Theresa, Garfield, Detrel, and Soul Afrodisiac.

      I had the same thing happen to me too! I think I was listening to Clouds the other day and didn’t make the connection until I started pulling this together.
