PLAYLIST FOR “WHAT I DID ON MY SUMMER VACATION” – SEASON PREMIER (9.1.18)

2 Sep

I’m back! And this week I shared songs about some of the things I saw and did during Turntable For One’s  two-month hiatus. Of course, I also checked to see if the audience did their homework and listened to the summer listening assignment I gave them in June. I think this is the only radio show you can take Pass/Fail.
