Retrospace Podcast #16

Time to take in the savory sounds of another Retrospace Podcast.  This level of sonic splendor cannot be recreated in the lab; many scientists have tried and failed. It is a miracle of Nature. The Retrospace Podcast is the serendipitous result of unexplained cosmic irradiation of a Foghat record steeped in the ectoplasmic bongwater of the ghost of Boz Scaggs, who, ironically, is still alive.

Indeed, I have the solution to the global energy crisis: at 95 degrees Celsius this podcast turns into liquid energy.  A single Retrospace Podcast, when heated, can power a city the size of Tupelo. We're still working out the kinks, though (for one, at high temperatures the podcast becomes unstable and can cause brain damage in pets).  So, until this podcast becomes a worldwide commodity, take a listen to the newest episode.

  1. Gilligan--these just get better & better, I could listen to this stuff all day. Wow, I love that first song 'The Rapper'--something about it made me want to find a backyard in 1968 with an aluminum lounge and a transistor radio plugged into my ear...

  2. Yes! This podcast I played over and over. I think "too many people" may be my fav Wings tune.
    Thanks Gilligan!

    Ahem, technically, "Too Many People" is not a Wings song, but I admit, a lot of the lineup from Wings is on the album...
