While we were airing our show Barack Obama landed in Brussels so we thought we’d give him a welcome. Well, advice / critique thinly veiled as a musical salute. Songs about presidents, politics and protest. For once you might have to listen closely to the lyrics and read between their lines.
You can listen to this show again, all week long.
