On this episode... a prank.

April Fools’ Day has run its course, which means it’s time to update this episode description to accurately reflect what’s in the episode. Hopefully this joke made some listeners laugh, and didn't ruffle too many feathers.

The actual full episode on Miles Davis’s “So What” should be live as of this update, and next in your feed.

To give credit where it's due:

Song: "Never Gonna Give You Up"

Artist: Rick Astley

Album: Whenever You Need Somebody (1987)

Written by: Stock Aitken Waterman

Listen/Buy: Apple Music | Amazon | Spotify

Special thanks to Emily for being an excellent test audience.
