Sunday, May 27

Inspired by Peter Thomas, secretary of the Conservative Caucus, who expressed resentment about a pizza restaurant chain’s plan to give free pizza to customers who place their orders in Spanish, and was quoted as saying: “In public areas, people should be speaking English, and that includes pizza parlors” – DJ McSchmormac decided to do an entire show of pre-1951 recordings in languages OTHER than English!!!
