    Show 72, June 12- 2024

    The summer show, incorporating the river show, because - reasons.

    Intro: Roulette - Dom Mariani and the Majestic Kelp, Underwater Casino, 2003

    Surf & Mull & Sex & Fun - Mental as Anything, from their 1985 album Fundamental. Put some mull in your pipe and puff it.

    Pacific Coast Highway - Wesley Fuller, it’s on his album All Fuller, No Filler, from 2024. Because it has “summer” in the lyrics and a summer feel.

    Summertime Again - Miriam Lieberman, from Birds of the Moon, her 2014 album.

    Surf’s Up Tonight - Midnight Oil, from their 1996 album Breathe.

    Summer City - theme song from the sountrack to the 1977 movie Summer City. Credited to Phil Avalon, who also produced the movie, which is notable for starring Mel Gibson in one of his first lead roles.

    Summertime - Gentle Ben and His Serious Side, from their 2005 album The Sober Light of Day.

    Hot Gully Wind - the Master’s Apprentices, from their 1967 debut LP.

    This Is the Summer - the Monstrous Blues, from their 2003 album Colourblind.

    Do songs with rivers in their titles fit with a summer theme?

    River Song - Adrian Kosky, from his 2006 album The High Side of the Low End. The sitar-like sound is from the mountain dulcimer, a Kosky specialty.

    The Rivers Song - Andy Cowan, from his 2004 album Sweet Release. Editors note: the record gives the title without an apostrophe.

    Take Me To the River - Grand Wazoo, from their 1998 album Band of 1000 Dances. It was a hit in 1974 for Al Green.

    Thinking Like A River - the Babe Rainbow, from their 2021 album Changing Colours.

    Dive - from 2001, from an EP by David Bridie. Sort of a water thing? Nice song anyway.

    Bow River - Cold Chisel, from the 1982 album Circus Animals.

    Outro - Chicken Omelette, by Baby Langston, from their acclaimed 1998 album.
