This was my intro, playlist, and outro today. I was a lot more organised thanks to mentors and family giving me sound advice since last Friday.
Good morning Kingscote, Good Morning Adelaide, Good Morning to Everyone Listening from around the World! This is Stephen Mitchell, at Radio Station 5 KIX FM, Kangaroo Island Community Radio, 10 AM till Midday.
This morning I am giving you a WHOLE HOST OF AMAZING songs. As I said on Facebook last night, I am playing an ENTIRE album from one particular artist whose album was produced in 1957. Wow!
