Capital Radio 3-13-23: Daylight to St. Paddy’s

A prerecorded Capital Radio comes in two parts above. We start with songs about Daylight Saving Time, and daylight and time and moving ahead (even if only for an hour), with selections from the Kinks, the Byrds, Daft Punk, Dooley Wilson and Drive By-Truckers, among others. 

Then a brief salute to Neil Sedaka on his 84th birthday — and an answer song from Carole King.

The new material on the recently released boxed set “The Songs of Bacharach & Costello” get a listen and we close with the annual celebration of the land of pink hearts, yellow moons, orange stars and green clovers, just in time for St. Paddy’s Day Friday.
