Wednesday Crosscurrents 2/3

Host - John Gaguine

On Saturday Lance Mitchell and his guest Rep. Bob Lynn (R-Anch.) did a fine and very eclectic show. Among other things they played Anne Murray's Snowbird. So I thought I would play a lot of songs today about birds, or with bird in the title.

Everly Bros - Bird Dog
Bobby Day - Rockin' Robin
Jewel Akins - The Birds and the Bees
Jackie Wilson - The Duck
The Rivingtons - The Bird's the Word
