New Location but still in Pefferlaw

Guess Our Mystery Theme

Every Saturday morning we kick off the show with our mystery-themed first set – five or six songs with something in common, we just don’t tell you what it is until after the fact. It maybe the titles, topic, lyrics or possibly a combination of all three. Put on your thinking cap and try and work out what they have in common.

Join us on Folk Roots Radio…
