SOUND OPINIONS WEEKLY RUNDOWN, 12/30/2016, SO_0123016


***CONTENT ADVISORY***

In the 'OBITS' section we play a portion of Negativeland's "I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For" (Special Edit Radio Mix). The song makes use of samples of Casey Kasem swearing during a taping of his radio show. All expletives are fully bleeped. Bleeps occur at 17:44, 17:47 and 17:52 into the episode.
