Theme: Release Date

R&R Singer with Guitar Sings to Microphone As usual, my songs are a mix of popular classic pop and rock songs from the last 50 years of music.

I have chosen them because I believe my audience is a diverse range of ages – so I want to make sure you all enjoy my music each Saturday night!

Tonight I have included the release date of each song. It is surprisingly easy to get the year: Type into Google “release date 'song title' - 'artist'“, and the answer is revealed most times either in the first link or in large print. I discovered I play a LOT of 1980’s music!
