Episode 100 - Music from 2 years of Broadcasts + Frank & Michelle’s last show - 10/27/17

This week, we celebrate 100 Episodes of The Expedition w/ Frank Foreal. We reminisced on the last two years of shows, where we have played approximately 3000 songs! We went through some tracks from our very first shows, some long time favorites, and still snuck in some new music for you to discover.

Also, this episode marks Frank & Michelle's last episode, as they both move on to other life endeavors. The show will take a hiatus for a few months to reconfigure under Derrick's lead, and we’re bringing some friends on board to help bring a fresh new sound to the show for 2018, including Plann.B & Baby Bubba of Soul Sessions fame.
