Here’s the playlist for Chris T-T’s Midnight Campfire episode #33, first broadcast Wed 15 Apr 2015. You can listen online HERE. One of my favourites; the second hour is themed on whales and whaling, plus the show has a more conventionally folkie vibe than usual. Still some curveballs though. Loved it. Boomtown Rats are this week’s Campfire Songbook entry…
