Sunday Sampler encore: Answer Songs (8/16/09)

Okay: In an continual attempt to garner a few new listeners, here's another part of a Sunday Sampler that you can click and play on your computer! It just so happens to be the second hour of the August 16 show, with the theme of "Answer Songs" (see below for the description). Actually, there's music after the theme hour, too (although the feature album which I mention during the hour is not part of it). Hope you like it!
