Chris T-T’s Midnight Campfire episode #63
From Words
posted on November 4th, 2015

Here’s the playlist for Midnight Campfire episode #63 first broadcast Wed 4 Nov 2015 on Brighton’s Juice 107.2. A good one – the Vic Chesnutt was a perfect start, lots of new stuff in the first hour, including some unheard gems. Launched November’s Album Of The Month, Mairearad & Anna’s magic third album Best Day. Then a themed second hour of rebel songs (vaguely for bonfire night), with a few lush bits of audio linking them. You can LISTEN ONLINE HERE – and here’s what I played…
