Weekly Dose of Fat –  Show Number 55 – Friday, May 8th 2015

The intro of today’s show was inspired by Orson Wells’ 100th birthday this past Wednesday. Orson was Kenosha born and we’re darn proud of his work. Especially this! – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VFevH5vP32s

Gomez is callin’ in from the remote studio while Sven and JK are in the Riverwest Studio.
