TACO Podcast Episode 12 (the sort of lost episde 12) Podcast

This episode was recorded shortly after the 11th episode and for reason unknown to all of mankind. John and Jon are just now getting around to loading the show for your entertainment.  Actually, we planned on posting the show in December, but decided at the last minute to do the Christmas special.  The episode mostly features songs with titles the same as the CD title and when that's not the case, the CD was self titled or the song has never been released . . .    except for Erica and Aaron.
