Episode 61 - Happy  Life Day!

It's Pauls birthday so we sit down and talk for another rollicking GORDCAST. Paul does a little record shopping (shocking!) that leads to THE WHO's - QUADROPHENIA boxset. JETHRO TULL, ELTON JOHN, ROB ZOMBIE, JOHN LENNON and DIMEBAG DARRELL all show up too. Gordie checks out the temporary ice rink in downtown Napa and gives a postal update. The real gem of the night is talking about THE STAR WARS HOLIDAY SPECIAL from 1978, after being reminded of it from the EOC SKYPE N' DRAW night. (Featuring an excerpt from that conversation)

We close out with feelings of this time of year and unfortunately, black Friday madness.
