The Episode 015 Set List
From Walking In Space to Thriller, the quintessential Quincy Jones has dominated the musicology of more than one generation. While giving praise to Q, your favorite Snobs take time to ask: who is the Quincy Jones of the last 20 years?

To cap things off the Snobs ask each other an interesting question: Which of your music heroes would you rather not meet?
