October 2nd Episode
Featured video: The Flannery Brothers perform “Pirate or Parrot?” off of their new CD, The New Explorers Club.
Repeat Button Award
We’re loving The Okee Dokee Brothers new CD, Take it Outside. Their combination of bluegrass and country sounds make for excellent breezy listening. We find their songs fun, entertaining, even educational, with lyrics reminiscent of country living. This album gets a 4-Star Repeat Button Award with four different repeat button requests being shouted from the back seat of the mini-van, including the songs: “Neighbors,” “Antidisestablishmentarianism,” “Tippy Toes” and “Auctioneer.”
