IBSC 83 Christmas Blues Redux

yup our first repeat, but this one's important since it is the Blue Bands last dance.   This show features a lot of Bob Dorr and the Blue band, with songs also by Rob Lumbard, Max Wellman, Tina Haas Finley, Jono Smith, John Evans, and Brian Holtz.  This is probably my favorite podcast.  Have a Merry Christmas, and a Happy New Year!!!
