  1. Jonathan P. Levin /

    Wonderful wonderful show. BEST ON THE RADIO! I’ve been listening for the past few years. Love it, and I have no kids…

    Listening today (Oct. 16) just heard a song I think called “Speak the Truth.” Wondering if that’s right and who did it. Please let me know.

    Much appreciate your response.

    Jonathan P. Levin

    • Hi Jonathan,

      That song is from Secret Agent 23 Skidoo’s excellent new album “Underground Playground.”

      Thanks for listening and for the kind words!
