Toppers / Not Toppers

Direct download here:


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.
