Steffi in Lowertown.
Chello Steve. Spending a lazy Saturday night with your great show. ... in my zero gravity chair.

That Spygenius flows nicely into that Caravan song - tuned in and enjoying the music but no BBQ today, we are having pasta made by my son 👍

Steve Kirkland (host)
Steffi, Good Evening... Lazy is a good state to be in, listening in

Wally -- they're both Canterbury bands... 50 years apart but geophysically and (in that uncommonly way) musically common.

Wally
I hadn't realized that, very cool & I guess the surroundings play a role in the inspiration

6:14 PM, June 27th, 2020
Steve Kirkland (host)
Indeed, Wally. Caravan always seemed to be mentioned inextricably linked with "The Canterbury Scene" of the late 60s/early 70s... In a world half a century and too many changes later, context and perspective are different, but Spygenius are mining the benefits of increased exposure and (air)play(s) globally through social media networking and growing recognition and appreciation of small labels, online radio programs/podcasts and , quantitatively and qualitatively modern pop music.
