Program for March 3, 2017

March 3, 2017
Preposterous ass, that never read so far 
To know the cause why music was ordain'd!
Was it not to refresh the mind of man
After his studies or his usual pain?
Yea, fear not, if thou be home or in thy car,
Hasten thy hand to flip on WMNR,
With any lucketh,
Friday night will cease to sucketh.
