Sideshow #8 - TV Theme Songs

August 10, 2017

Jacques and Joe push copyright laws to their limits as they sing along to their favorite TV theme songs from the '70s and '80s! Remember "Webster," "The Greatest American Hero," "Maude," and more? Of course you do, because that's all people in their 40s do nowadays: remember the past.

So many hours watching TV. Just gone. Gone. ENJOY!
