Make WXCI Great Again: Denver Airport edition July 25, 2016

On today's show, the automation computer was down so our access to WXCI's digital library was limited. Normally that wouldn't be a big deal, except I also forgot to bring my laptop charger. So we had limited music, production and access to talk topics. We did our best to entertain as best as possible but that did not prevent one caller from saying "hey why don't you assholes shut up and play some music?" about 15 minutes from the end of our shift. Around that point we had just about had enough, and so we gave that guy the old "be careful what you wish for" and played 3 Jute Gyte songs.

We also discussed the conspiracy theories involving the Denver airport, which is the location of Bluecifer and the scary gasmask-dude murals (shown above).
