It is springtime, and two outcasts — a man ignored, even shunned by his village, and the one-eyed dog he takes into his quiet, tightly shuttered life — find each other, by accident or fate, and forge an unlikely connection. As their friendship grows, their small, seaside town suddenly takes note of them, falsely perceiving menace where there is only mishap; the unlikely duo must take to the road. 
Hanabi is soon to be making his travels to the ancient homelands of Europe, specifically, Paris, London and Rome. The big three I guess you might say. I’ve been to Paris and London several times, and I never get tired of those cities. How could you? I’m looking forward to Rome, as I’ve never been. Needless to say, many adventures await. In this episode Hanabi lays out the plans for the restaurants he wants to try, and after he returns we’ll contrast and compare. In Paris, among several spots it’s all about L’Avant Comptoir. It’s modern Paris at its best, from what we hear. In London, it’s all about a full-English breakfast for Hanabi. Apparently there’s no better place than Breakfast Club right now. We’ll see how it stacks up to The Wolseley. Rome is a wide open book right now.. There’s just so many places to go, but Bonci Pizzarium is the siren call for Hanabi and it must be done. Have you ever wanted to eat a Dork Burger or Dog Sticks Me too. Check out Hanbi’s adventure to the LunchBox Laboratory in Seattle!
Happy Saturday! We’ve got a great show for you today with the perfect mix of brand new tunes and old favorites. Stand out tracks include “Tibetan Pop Stars” from Hop Along and their reissued 2012 album. Awfully quick for a reissue, but it’s worth it! Plus, a new track from La Sera and new bands Adult Books and Dutch Party. Make sure to check it all out on the show today!
