Thank you for a memorable program! I'll listen back on my recording and see if I can figure out the correct ID, and maybe use the Shazam browser extension to see if I can ID the songs/artist. This was one cool broadcast! Thank you!

After listening to several ID's, it seems that "Flea Blocker" is the ID! As expected, the Shazam browser extension could not ID the songs or artist! Here's my recording of the show:
