The Jewel Case: Desert Island Mixtape (10-17-19)

Normally, we celebrate a theme in the last one or two hours of the show, but THIS week is a little bit different. For all three hours, I bring you my "Desert Island Mixtape": as many of my personal all-time favorite jams that would hypothetically fit on three C-60 cassettes, along with reasons why they made the cut.
