LN-QRM #21: It’s Friday

Have you heard that song? You know, the one that represents every bad over-produced, over-hyped tween song ever created? Well then you have to listen to the beginning of the show… well… maybe not… If you suffer from high blood pressure, heart disease  or any kind of intestinal track weaknesses, then skip past the first few minutes. Don’t worry, there are still lots of topics in tonight’s show. Enjoy…
