 This month's Eclectic Music For Mind And Bodhi is an indulgent celebration of my sixtieth birthday, which falls at the end of February (George Harrison, Renoir, Rashida Jones).

I did something like this for my 50th, called, imaginatively, 'Fifty', in which I selected what I considered 50 of the best tunes I'd ever heard and merged them, edited down, into a 2 hour show for Dandelion Radio. You can download that old show here Fifty

This time, I haven't tried any fancy editing, but just selected a bunch of songs that I listen to frequently, quite often during drunken sentimental youtube expeditions. These are songs that haunt me. Some are quite well known. A few you won't have heard of. If you do know all of them...well, come over one evening...we'll share a few bottles and eviscerate my CD collection.


A few of these tunes have been favourites for several decades, 1 or 2 for only a couple of years.
