It’s the final week in Paul’s one month season of ‘songs with something to say’ and this week the program builds to a musical climax with Tret Fure, Jim Keays, The Animals, Rodriguez and The Waterboys. You’ll hear Danny Kaye’s classic satire on fashionable pretension, The Emperor’s New Clothes, and Barry Maguire’s apocalyptic Eve Of Destruction.
There’ll be songs from the Moody Blues, FlyBZ with Paul Kelly, Judy Collins and Thunderclap Newman; and Paul will tell you the poignant story of the violin begun during World War 1 and completed in 2008, and how its music has recently been played for its first creator.
Business comment, news, weather, rail and traffic complete Monday’s drive time mix. You can send comment and requests via firstname.lastname@example.org, or via this website.
