Good show on Friday, folks. We featured a gift from Santa: the Children of Nuggets box set put out by Rhino.

If you missed the show, you can listen to the podcast below or download it to your computer and listen at your leisure. The podcast cut off part of the final song, so I've made the mp3 of that song available for download (The Nerves - One Way Ticket), along with a few others. Enjoy!
