Feelin’ Smoochie (6/8/13)

John & Jess are playing records in the deluxe living room, as they often do. There are new recordings, a new release recorded in 1962, and classics from Blossom, Billie, Dinah, Hoagy, Lester, and the two Louises (Armstrong and Prima). One by the latter inspires this week’s theme.
