Episode #66: 47 Miles of Barbed Wire

Spring songs! Every song this week has “spring” in its name or at least in its step. From a children’s favorite about hysteria, to the guitar theme from a forgotten TV show, it’s all good and you can’t go far wrong if you listen to both ends and to the in-between. Lots of cover tunes, old folk music, hippie music, soul, hip-hop, country, romance, hardship, sadness, banana splits, Bob and Ray, a word from our sponsor, a Bonzo interlude, and even more.

See, we told you that winter would end eventually.
