Beware the Raven!

Stop shoveling and start listening, that’s my motto. 

On tonight’s program, we’ll spend a vacation day at the beach with Santo and Johnny, visit with the Farmer in the Dell courtesy of a record called Kiddie Rock au Go-Go, hear from the soundtrack to the film Bunny O’Hare and take a Hammer Blow from Skip Martin and the Orchestra – ouch that hurts!

Oh, and by the way, beware the Raven!
