The Legends of the Rocking Dutchman - episode 84

More Booze

In one of the first shows of the Legends of the Rocking Dutchman I featured songs about drinking - and there are so many blues devoted to the booze, that I could easily do another show on it. Well here it is - once more a show full of whiskey, wine and beer, all euphemistically called the juice. Bottoms up for the blues that sing about its contents - cheers!
