Live Tracks for 7:00pm on May 7th, 2020

  Original airdate April 30, 2015.  

  This episode features an excellent 17+ minute jam by Achilles Wheel recorded in Auburn, California in 2011.  Only fitting that it closely follows my telling of the 'History of the Lava Lamp.'  Both these segments can be found in hour two of the program.

  But wait, there's more!  How about a healthy dose of the West Nile Ramblers, seasoned by an amazing in studio live recording of "Smoke That Cigarette' performed by the Californios with Mike Blanchard.  The world's oldest pretzel, why is it shaped the way it is?  Why do humans have chins?

  Check it out.  Peace.
