Chris T-T’s Midnight Campfire episode #43

Here’s the playlist for Midnight Campfire episode #43, first broadcast Wed 17 June 2015 on Juice 107.2. The second hour was all songs about bicycles.

You can LISTEN ONLINE HERE. I don’t think this is a prime episode – equipment acted up, I made a bunch of mistakes, plus some songs I thought would be great sounded shonky (and there was no Campfire Songbook entry because it wouldn’t play). Still I really enjoyed the second hour. I loved sticking Katie Melua between Tom Waits and Half Man Half Biscuit. It was also lush that listeners picked so many of the themed songs. Thank you. Here’s the listen online link and here’s what I played…
