The Big Beat 'cast 15

I did away with the usual format for this week's Beat'cast. Armed with a stack of CD's, I just hit record and let the funk flow. Played with a few less rules, I did. Kind of a 'back to the egg' program. I hope you like it.

And the funk does flow: BEASTIE BOYS, RAPHAEL SAADIQ, and CEE LO GREEN for starters. Hear a new tune from YUCK; plus, meet Austin's FOOT PATROL and JEFF LOFTON. Stream the show right from this page.
