Episode 205: The New Year’s Show That Didn’t Air with Zeke Johnson

This was recorded 31 December, 2017. It was meant to be live. That didn't happen as apparently (or so we are told), some New Year's Eve reveller took out an "internet node" with his car and took down the entire area the studio sits in. There were phone calls to the ISP (Comcast), adult language was used (liberally) and it was ultimately decided to record the show for later use. Here is that later use. Ric and Dianna were ready to go with this show so they did it anyway. It is the Radio Memphis New Year's Eve show featuring Zeke Johnson.

NEXT WEEK: Goodson & Taylor
