“Touch The Leather” by the KZYX House Band

The Valley's third best public radio station (aka Radio Pee Syrup) sings of a passionate night spent on KMUD's indoor patio furniture with two or maybe five muscular femalesque Trimmigrants from Palos Verdes. The catchy song hit number 5,189 on the burgeoning Icelandic-Bhutan Soft Jazz Scene under the name: "Operation Not-So-Warm Leatherette (Except For That Tabouli-Stained Hole Near the Missing Buttonhole of the Universe)."
