FFFreakout #443-445


It has happened only one other time in our show’s history where the weekly show has landed on three consecutive observed holidays. We are, of course, talking about Christmas Day, New Year’s Day, and David Bowie & Elvis Presley’s birthdays. We did attempt to do an abbreviated, year-end type show on episode #444 just focusing on some songs that caught our ears. A more complete list of 2014 favorites appears elsewhere on the site.
