Wow. Fell asleep before this part, because I'm old, and that's also the reason I remember Free To Be. Which I haven't thought about in 40+yrs.

That was my 'go-to' phrase when I was a kid and my mom would call me out on a faux pas or infraction of some sort...."free to be, you and me, mom".

 

References like this is one the reasons it's so fun watching the Tweedy Show.

One small tweak to the Episode 168 notes: Jeff also sang backing vocals on The Air That I Breathe. He's off camera, but you can distinctly hear three voices on the choruses.
