Many are enjoyable from the first listen, and it’s these that I want to give their place in the sun – neglected B sides, forgotten album tracks, cover versions of well known songs by surprising artists (Ghost Riders in the Sky by Debbie Harry, anyone?; Tiny Tim covering the Doors? ) that are remarkable for their beauty,their new insights into old songs, and their sheer effrontery, and songs that graced our playlists for a while but have sunk into limbo. And where possible, I will provide some background factoids that I found interesting while researching playlists for the program.

It’s an infinite journey, Off The Beaten Tracks, but an infinitely enriching and satisfying one. I hope you can join me, Wednesdays 10 am to noon, as often as you can.
