Do you remember Tim Meadows’ recurring bit in the late 90s on Saturday Night Live called “The Ladies’ Man”? Well, on this week’s show we’ve got a segment of songs about…ladies! We’ll also celebrate the birthdays of James Meton, Art Gillham and some others and hear from The Foursome male vocal close harmony quartet.
