Ginger Feather playlist 21 July / Rosie

I had to re-record some of this Sunday's show as my wife and I had the unpleasant task of taking our cat to the vet last night and were told that her heart was so weak that there wasn't much more they could do for her. So if there's a cat heaven, she's there now with all the other tabby cats and free from pain. Her name was Rosie and she was named partly after the Fairport Convention song and partly after a silent character in the BBC Radio 4 soap The Archers. Rest in peace little one. Thanks for your companionship over the last 12 or so years.

Tune in to Ginger Feather FM on Sunday at 6pm to hear...

Fairport Convention - Rosie
Patti Smith - Within You Without You
June Tabor - Shipbuilding
Jenny Sturgeon - Running Free
Sarah-Jane Summers & Juhani Silvola - Sister Donna Kelly
Skipinnish - Walking on the Waves
Sandy Denny - Whispering Grass
Jesca Hoop - Simon Says
Neil Young - Helpless (live)
Stephen Stills - Judy
Sam Baker - Ditch
