I was very excited to play a couple of the older tracks that were on this week's playlist such as the Mary Jane Girls who were Rick James' backup singers. The name supposedly comes from James' affinity for the green leaf, often overlooked because of this. Apologies for being stupid lazy and posting the list up just now when the show was 5 days ago....great way to lose interest Dennis.

And I must end with CHEA!
