    The Holiday Mixtape ft. Annabel Jones and Suzannah

    The Holiday Mixtape ft. Annabel Jones and Suzannah

    Just when you thought we were done for the year, we do something like this and totally redeem ourselves. That's right, Paul, Ryan, and their lovely wives, Suzannah and Annabel, did the unthinkable. They each compiled a list of their three favorite holiday songs, created the ultimate Now Hear This Holiday Songs Playlist, and then walked through it on this hilariously fun and long (great value) season one bonus episode. Because we don't want to ruin any of the surprises, we will say this: please get comfortable, pour yourself your favorite holiday beverage, snuggle up with those you love next to the nearest open fire, and enjoy another helping of Now Hear This.

    ELO - Time

    Here is the news: We have a serious case of rocket lag on this episode on ELO's Time.

Where is the plot line running through these songs? Will Jeff Lynne make it back to Julie? Have you rented an apartment on a roller coaster?

Will Ryan and Paul make it back from the Twilight Zone? Will we ever meet Jeb and his gangrenous leg? Listen and find out. Now hear this: "What Kind of World," "Bad for Me," "Light of Day," and "On the Fence."

    Join Paul, Ryan, and America's favorite hamburger boy on a jaunt through the now released, unreleased, mythical masterpiece SMiLE. All jokes aside, the gloves fell off in this one, and we took a few long, deep dives into the 1960s, psychedelia, psychedelics, psychology, and Mike Love's hat. Have our kids done it and created their best episode of season one or have they finally alienated their audience and themselves? Grab your piano sandbox, modular musical sensibilities, and birthday cake and buckle up for the wild ride of The Beach Boys' SMiLE. Now hear this: "Heroes and Villains," "Good Vibrations," "Cabinessence," "Surf's Up," and "Wonderful."
