Radio Ping Pong with Rob Weisberg

Hello Y'all,

A couple times a year Rob Weisberg is kind enough to ask me to bring a box of records and go track to track for 2 hours. For the first hour we have decided to have Spain (Rob) go up against Latin America (Pat.). Sometimes it can get hectic sometimes it is smooth but it is always a lot of fun.

Here's our last bout...
