Episode 23 - Happy Vern Day Chick Corea vs. Anonymous

In the episode, we celebrate Vernon's birthday the Field Negro way—turning on the mics and talking about whatever comes to mind. After wandering off from a conversation about 'Mad Men' ripoffs, Vern takes us through a primer on modern Jazz Fusion and tell war stories about his recent battle with several raccoons. Yes, raccoons.

There's plenty of music to be found in this episode, but Vernon touches on so many different artists that it would be hard to fit it all in. Make sure to drop by FNGTAC.com soon after this episode goes up to get more info on the songs featured in this episode and the other songs and artists that are discussed.
