"Old Skool Vibes"

A last-minute travel-related snafu prevents Ben from making it to the studio, so we're back to Old Skool Eclectic Kettle, with far fewer arguments about ridiculous nonsense, and a bit more music instead.

Plus, the show starts during Game 1 of the World Series, featuring the San Francisco Giants, so who was actually listening, really?

Simon does take advantage of his time alone on the show to practice one of his favourite hobbies, though - referring to Ben by his hated DJ name, "DJ Cozy", so everyone's a winner (well, except for DJ Cozy).
