Chris T-T’s Midnight Campfire episode #62
From Words
posted on October 28th, 2015

Here’s the playlist for Midnight Campfire episode #62 first broadcast Wed 28 Oct 2015 on Brighton’s Juice 107.2. I loved doing this one, after a couple of wobbly weeks. Though there were tech quirks, the music flowed great, that Will Varley into Tennessee Ernie is a perfect start and I’m loving WIAIWYA’s Bond tribute compilation A Girl And A Gun, from which I took three songs. Dropped in a six minute Hoagy Carmichael at the last moment because of some weird glitches meaning the first half was short of allocated time – and actually it matched fine. Anyway, you can LISTEN ONLINE HERE and here’s what I played…
