Listen to the Grass Grow Ep 45 December 16 2012

This week, special guest Diamond Don helps bring the hits and makes sure the Grass is Growin'.

Thanks to the listener who called in with the burning question that was on everyone's mind, "4AD used to put out the Pixies, now they put out this [Scott Walker]bullshit. What the fuck happened?"  Made my night.
