The Covid-19 pandemic has effected life everywhere, even in Good Music Land. Hear your host's harrowing story of his personal struggles to a soundtrack of fine oldies, plus a number of original tracks-- a power ballad, a synth number, a helpful public service announcement, and more-- debuting on this very broadcast. (Links will be available soon to hear these tracks individually, should anyone ever wish to subject themselves to them again.)

Featuring Burl Ives, Steve Elliott,  Paul McCartney, Juan Bastos, The New Year with "My Bleeding Wound," The Police, Frank and His Sisters, Touch, Beck, and Colin Blunstone. Soundtrack work in the background is mainly the work of John Ottman from the 1995 neo-noir The Usual Suspects, as well as a single track from the original soundtrack to Capricorn One (1978).

Guest host: Marshall Applewhite

Toppers production being at an all time low, we were forced to dredge up this show (designed by the Gilboard without the benefit of a host) in order to meet demand. Hear songs with helpful spiritual commentary by Marshall Applewhite, filling in for Gil from the Great Beyond, and marvel at the junction of supply and demand in today's busy online musical blogosphere-forum.
