Artist | Track/Song Name | Album Title | Label/Distributor | Comments

Opening Theme: Eilen Jewell | Radio City | Queen Of The Minor Key

1. James Brown | The Boss | Black Caesar
- One of James' most famous drummers, John 'Jabo' Starks passed away on May 1st, aged 79. He played with James and the JB's between 1970 and 1975 and often in combination with James' other great drummer, Clyde Stubblefield who passed away last year. This tune is a classic from the 1973 Black Caeser soundtrack.
2. Lyn Collins | Think (About It) | Think (About It)
- This 1972 tune also features Jabo on drums and is one of the most sampled tunes in music history!
3. Grant Green | The Windjammer | Green Is Beautiful
- A great jazz/soul tune from this wonderful guitarist's 1970 album.
4. Jake Mason Trio | Candy Smack | The Stranger In The Mirror
- Jake's debut album with his trio is out tomorrow and they're launching it on May 17th at Chapel Off Chapel as part of the Stonnington Jazz Festival.

5. PP Arnold | (If You Think You're) Groovy | The First Lady Of Immediate
- After playing a few tunes off PP's most recent release, The Turning Tide, I thought I'd go back to one of her original singles from 1967 which was written by Steve Marriott and Ronnie Lane from Small Faces. PP Arnold is touring Melbourne soon and is playing at Memo Music Hall on May 17th, The Thornbury Theatre on May 18th and The Night Cat on May 25th.
6. Traffic | Medicated Goo | Last Exit
- I played PP Arnold's version of this classic tune recently which is great but I thought it'd be fun to play the original on today's show.
7. La Bastard | Between You And Me | Trouble
- It's sad for me to say that La Bastard's final ever gig will be on May 26th at The Tote with support from The Sugarcanes, Hana And Jessie Lee.
8. Kid Congo & The Pink Monkey Birds | Ricky Ticky Tocky | La AraƱa Es La Vida
- Kid will be playing at Theatre Royal in Castlemaine tomorrow night and the Croxton Bandroom on Saturday night. There will also be a Kid Congo Powers special on Junkyard tonight from 7pm with Michael Mullholland.

9. Even | The Opener | Satin Returns
- Even have finally released their first album in 7 years and will be launching it at an intimate show at Richmond Theatrette next Wednesday.
10. The Soundtrack Of Our Lives | Thrill Me | Communion
- The Even song reminded me of this great Swedish band so I thought I'd play this awesome track from their 2008 album.
11. The Golden Rail | Shouldn't Get Hung Up About It | Forthcoming Album
- The Golden Rail will be releasing a new album soon but their next gig is at The Retreat on May 27th with Danny McDonald and Blackbirds F.C.
12. Baby Blue | Big Picture | Do What You Like
- This is from Baby Blue's 2nd EP which is released on June 1st. Their next gigs are supporting G Flip at a sold out show at The Workers Club on Saturday night and as a duo supporting Great Earthquake on June 9th at the Grace Darling.
13. The Genes | The Godfather's Lament | Dead Street Light
- The Genes' latest album was released earlier this year.

14. Jane McArthur | Story Thieves | Ephemeralogica
- This great tune is taken from Jane's 2nd album, released in 2016 but she has just made a film clip for it which is being launched at Thornbury Picture House on Sat night at 6pm on the dot!
15. Gene Clark | Silver Raven | No Other
- This 1974 album is one of my all-time favourites and thought this tune went well following Jane's tune.
16. Rhiannon Giddens | Julie | PBS FM - The Sounds Of Studio 5 Live 2018: Daytime Treats
- The PBS radio festival starts next Monday and if you sign up, you'll get your choice of 2 Studio 5 cd's. This great performance from last April is featured on the Day cd.
