PLAYLIST FOR “THINGS TO DO WHILE LISTENING TO TURNTABLE FOR ONE” (10.8.16)

10 Oct

It’s a multi-tasking world. For instance, I’m tap dancing while I type this (which could explain all of the typos). What does my audience do while listening to Turntable For One? They told me some of the things they do – the things they can’t be arrested for – and I gave them a few additional suggestions, too. A good time was had by all. (See below for proof.)
