Episode 229 / Save The Ales


A third chapter in our series devoted to drinking alcohol! Three years ago, we did a show called Get Drunk and Be Somebody, followed a few months later by Alcoholics Unanimous, each program containing songs where the subject matter has some connection with adult beverages. Turns out that we’d only scratched the surface and had covered a small sample of the tunes in this category — therefore, we hereby present the hard stuff: a third intoxicating volume entitled “Save the Ales”. One for the road!
