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.

"Move it in, move it out, move it in roundabout, Disco Lady!"
Those lyrics were just a little too suggestive to Kitty back in 1976 when this song was a hit. But lots of folks appeared to be in a disco mood this morning when we played that number one...
I made jambalaya for supper last night--today I think I'll celebrate Mardi Gras with my favorite Louisiana export, Sonny Landreth!
