In our inaugural episode we ask: is Fall the best season, or have suburbanites obsessed with pumpkin spice everything ruined it? Why are people losing interest in boxing and baseball? How will the Vikings do in 2017? Who will win the Super Bowl? What are the most iconic rock songs of 1967? We discuss the above as we debut the three segments of the show: the Shallow Well, the Ice Cold Sports Fix, and Across the Great Divide (the music portion). Thanks for listening!
"I Can't Do My Work," the theme song for the Rambling On Radio hour, was written and created by Marshall Nystrom and Erik Ritland.
