Today’s guest pictures come from Katja, one of the coolest moms in the R&F universe. Editor note: I’m a big fan of Ronnie B. and his incredible interviews, and his show has kept me sane when I’m in the mood for a little honesty, and uncensored radio. Definitely not for your kids, but if you are curious, check em out on Sirius XM and one of the features I look forward to, Unmasked.
