This is the 5th official podcast episode of 2018 here on the Sound & Groove Podcast. This is the 1st in a 2-part theme on songs about flying. Whether it be be air travel, space travel or any other type of trip into the hemisphere. It's all fair game for another series of tremendous tunes you'll hopefully enjoy. And if you haven't been keeping up with S&G on Music of Evan's Mind and/or its home at www.notthepublicbroadcaster.com, here's the breakdown: Every month there will be a theme that the selection of music is centred around. It will be jam-packed with my analysis, synopses, anecdotes and other witticisms you might enjoy while I play edited-down versions of each tune. And not to worry, because each month will contain a different theme than the last. Got it? Get it? Good. Happy listening to you all.Read More
