#48: The Stay Woke Playlist

It’s 4 am.

You’ve got a full, NRA approved Yeti Rambler of coffee, the boat’s gassed up, and you’re headed to the boat ramp.

What’s on the radio?

We asked as many folks as we could for their “on the way to the boat ramp” songs, and this is what we’ve ended up with.  The first ever playlist designed to actually keep you “woke” in the truest sense of the word . . .

You can use Spotify to listen to our entire list by clicking here . . .
