Last week, Hudson River Blue began exorcising the demons of the Frank Lampard contractual saga once and for all. Today, the cleansing continues-- THE HEALIN'.

In episode two, we'll re-live the brutal, disastrous fallout of the New Years' Eve announcement confirming Lampard's extended stay at Manchester City through our own MC Bousquette's celebrated "Getting Over Frank" playlist. Emotions ran high and deep in this installment, and special guest Nick Chavez channeled every last jilted, heavy-hearted sentiment into today's musical accompaniments.
