Addendums to Past Themes (CKCU Funding Drive)

The theme on this CKCU 2022 Funding Drive edition of Stranger Songs is Addendums to Past Themes. More often than not, when I choose a theme for Stranger Songs, there are more possible songs to choose from than I can include – and sometimes new music that fits the theme arrives after the show has been produced. So, I’ve chosen a few of the themes from the past year for addendums. Please visit to make your charitable donation to help us continue bringing you creative, volunteer-programmed, listener-supported community radio for another year. Click on LISTEN NOW to hear this show. Click on LISTEN to hear the current CKCU broadcast.
