Cover (front)

This is the Producer's Cut to # 123: "This is NOT George Orwell's 1984" or "1984: Music & Headlines", split up between September 22 & 29, 2014. I replaced "In the Name of Love" and "Easy Lover" (The latter was more 1985, see Show # 156), plus off-topic voicetracks with "I Feel for You", "Everything She Wants", and "Let's Go Crazy", respectively.
