Each weekday at 8am, Jonathan & Kitty present the 8 at 8. The 8 at 8 is a collection of eight songs, with a combined theme, meaning or unifying idea.
With two minds like Jonathan & Kitty, the song combinations are infinite. They might be ridiculous too, but it's a infinite ridiculousness, just like Jonathan & Kitty.
