Our Featured Artist this week, Vanessa Delaine, has a new album out called One Girl Band-25 Years, and we will be playing three songs from the album, in the second hour of the show.

Our Flashback Track from the 2018 play list for the show will be from Dave Prior & Jon O’Dea; our Featured Instrumental will be from Lindsay Waddington; for our Featured International Artist, we’ll be going back to the 1940s. One of our Sydney listeners, Lin Golab, has sent us a song called Kiss Kiss Kissin’ in the Corn, which was written by her father, Ernie Davidson and his co-writer, Ken Taylor in 1946. It was recorded in December 1947 at Majestic Studios in New York by US band, Captain Stubby & The Buccaneers. This was the first Australian song to reach the American market, and Tuesday will be the first time that it has been played on Australian air waves in the 70+ years since it was released; then, our Featured Indigenous Artist will be Aimee Hannan.

Our Emerging Talent segment will feature songs from Juliet Oliver; Jake Davey; and Jacinta & Amelia Scacchitti.
