Geography Part 3: International

Today is the third episode of my geography theme. We began with States on August 21, 2009, followed by Domestic Cities on September 4, 2009. This final installment will focus on international locations, highlighting cities, regions and countries on all 7 continents. I included many of the songs that you listeners suggested in our original brainstorm from last year. The show was extended an extra 45 minutes to squeeze in plenty of songs worth hearing. Let’s boogie around the globe together!
