Hello, partygoers!

We received a really nice gift here in the old Listening Party rumpus room this week. Partygoer Chris Roberts wrote a wonderful song celebrating this very podcast. Mary and David couldn’t have been more pleased (and there may have been some tears, but that’s all were going to say about it). Chris also made a video to accompany the song and we invite you all to check it out – it’s lots of fun!

Now back to your regular podcast already in progress. This week Mary and David go tropic! As in, Tropicália!

Yes, for listener Mike Roth’s final mixtape, Dave interpreted his request for bossa nova as a request for the wild and provocative music of political protest of the late Sixties/early Seventies in Brazil. Is that what he wanted? Was he pleased to get an hour plus of Portuguese-language craziness? ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
