Right? Who knew the Bahamas was a hotbed of funk and soul?

HEY! That version of Take Five ... is in 4! Wha?? And, yeah, I've not heard Funky Nassau in a looong while. Think I heard that first waaaaay back in high school days -- early 70s.

I don't know, man. Those Bahamanians have all kinds of tricks.

I don't think I ever heard those Funky Nassau tracks before. But you know, I was concentrating on other things in the early 70s. Like toy trucks and stuff.

Hi Rob, Got all the windows open and the music on today--in the home office, papers strewn about -- getting ready for tax time!

Rob Bitschofsky (host)
Ooooooh, Shelly, don't remind me! I'm in a perfect state of denial regarding the taxes. But I hope the music helps if you must do them today.

Yes, good music always helps when you have to do yucky, boring things, like prepare for tax time. Still got a lot of work ahead. Really enjoying the music today.

No worries! This Island Earth is here to see you though your taxes! I hope you get a big fat refund.

You're hurling tracks into the void that is my mind... Thanks for that! Reuben's digging it too.

Sweeeeet! That kid's got good taste! Tell him I got some proper Balinese gamelan coming up special for him.

Clean, purge, file, shred, organize......still at it and still tuned in.

Yuck! This feast of Brazillian percussion should help things along. Keep listening!
