The last time I looked, neither Donald Trump nor Jeff Sessions have managed to cancel Summer - - what a relief! On June 20th (actually the day before Summer begins, but so close as to make no difference), Something Completely Different will celebrate the change of season with many warm songs which anyone can record and take to the beach (not mandatory).  

Guilty Pleasures:  Music We Love More Than We Can Say. We take a deep dive into the memory vaults to spin the tunes that we shamelessly love. From guilty pleasures, including a disco dance number, to confessional ballads like James Carr’s “Dark End of the Street” and songs of redemption ala Bobby Hebb’s “Sunny,” we shine a light on our heart’s true delights. Plus, we explore social protest anthems including Mavis Staples' "Long Walk to D.C.," Simon & Garfunkel's "Richard Cory," and a standout R & B version of Pete Seeger's "If I Had a Hammer" sung by Shreveport's Toussaint McCall.
