Good morning People Like Us! I have been thinking about a song you played close to the end of your show 2 weeks ago on here. There's a little girl that keeps repeating "Hey Youuuuu!"Can you please tell me the name of that track? Is it a mash up? Tried to find it in archives but when I checked it didn't show that Playlist, but instead an old Trouble playlist.

Ha! I suspected as such. I thought maybe there'd be some release about it. I had the old Ichiban stream set up on my Sonos, and when it broke away, I unknowingly went with it. I finally figured it out when I was looking at the live playlist and realized it didn't at all match what i was listening to.
