Toad and Ruth Back on Fresh Air Tonight
Fresh Air, after giving its hard-working students an entirely deserved and not at all excessive four months off over the Summer, is back on the interweb airwaves this week. And you know what that means, don’t you? Yes, Ruth calling me names for an hour and a half while we play songs! Hooray! Kind of.
We’ve been off the air for ages, and I actually haven’t seen Ruth all that much in the intervening time, so it will be nice to have a chat and catch up, although I promise to try and do most of that whilst the songs are playing so as not to bore you too much.
Live from 8pm (UK time) – listen here.
The player on the page linked to above can be a little flaky, so just pause and un-pause it and that should sort it out. Alternatively I am pretty certain you can find us on iTunes quite easily. We’ll be updating the playlist live below as we go along, so feel free to chip in with comments during the show and we’ll… well, probably just tell you to piss off, really.
