59:38 minutes (54.61 MB)

Tonight on the Show, it's America's Birthday. How is everyone celebrating (or not - remember COVID-19 is still with us, and the Delta Variant is very concerning, so be careful out there)?

Weekend Warrior highlights some events OTHER than July Fourth, because those events get their own segment. And, a recap of the first Juneteenth as a Federal Holiday.

And, the 11th Annual DJBC Fireworks Mix.
