The Jewel Case: Household Chores (11-29-18)


Thanksgiving's over, the leftovers are gone, and we're back at it. This place could use a little tidying up. In this week's edition of The Jewel Case, we tackle HOUSEHOLD CHORES. We'll be spinning tunes about housework from folks like Cab Calloway, the Chordettes, Fishbone, the Stones, and more, so put on those rubber gloves (you don't want to get all pruny, now, do you?), grab a mop, and meet us at 91.3 WYSO. See you there.
