THE PROGRESSIVE TRACKS SHOW #416 (“It’s The Money, Fool…)

KPTZ 91.9 FM is now 10 years old!

Unfortunately, the expenses never end, so we’re in the middle of raising funds… and I’m not much for begging.

But I have a solution to reconcile those thing:  I’ll be in charge of celebrating… and the TUNES will gently remind you about the money.  ????
