11/7/2012 Modern Kicks

It’s a special edition of the program as Sean provides continued election coverage for the local and national races. This episode also features an appearance by special guest PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA… sort of, by way of his acceptance speech from his election party headquarters in Chicago, IL. (Shut up. It still counts.)

Between the mess of election news and updates, there was also a special playlist of music from only RED STATES — to serve as an olive branch to those who may feel a little down about the results from this past election. Don’t be so down, guys! Even if we don’t see eye to eye on certain domestic or international polciies, we can all agree that your states produce some pretty great music — such as SUPERCHUNK, JAY REATARD, BLACK LIPS, NEGATIVE NANCY and BAD SPORTS!
