Episode #355 – Sunday, August 29, 2010

Today, we’re pre-recorded because I’m off riding in the MS Bike Tour, which sees me and a whole bunch of fit people ride from Stonewall to Gimli, and back again. So how does an overweight, out of shape, nerd like myself manage such a task? Why, with the right music, of course! Today, we take a listen to some of the songs in my “Motivators” playlist, which definitely rocks a little harder than we’re used to on a Sunday afternoon.

Plus, you’ve heard all those dog songs, even our pal Stu’s cat songs, but how about monkey songs! That’s right, in honour of one of the few words that Jeremy can actually say pretty clearly, he sits in on the show and plays a whole set of songs about his favourite animal (we think), monkeys!
