A Bob Playlist no. 2.

IMG_1682 (1)

There were artists that I couldn’t fit in last list and it was because Bob loved so many. I keep thinking of more that he would have played, here are some more! This is the song before Chris Lee’s theme song of Country On:

Connie Kis Andersen –  On the other side of midnight

Clelia Adams – Wildflowers

The Crosby Sisters – Trouble in the fields

Alice Benfer – A little bit flirty

Brad Butcher – Well Dressed Man

Bruce McCumstie – Georgina’s Son

Rob Wilson and Tara Naysmith – Do You Want To Dance

Andrew Swift – Runaway Train

Melody Moko – The Wreckage

Lloyd Clarke – Threading the Eye of the Needle

Brad Cole – Come Home

Alby Poole – I’ve Convinced Everybody but me

Kalesti Butler – Ride Cowboy

8 Ball Aitken – Cyclone Country

Paul Costa – Right Back At Ya

Katie Brianna – King

Harmony James – 30,000Feet

Chris Staff – Crankin’

Cathy Dobson – Ball and Chain

There are a lot of artists out now that I know Bob would love. When I moved to Victoria we had a lot of long phone calls where he would ask me who have I heard, who have I seen. I sent him some music, he liked Peter Smokie Dawson, Benny Allen, etc and a lot of the rockier songs, which he loved most.

I will finish part 2 with this one.


A special playlist – What Bob Browne would pick….probably! Country On.

I usually do a playlist most weeks of my favourites, what I would play on radio at the moment, etc. Given my association with Bob Browne on radio and the fact that he passed away on Friday, I am going to put up a list of some of Bob’s favourites, in no particular order. I am not putting current singles or artists since Bob finished on radio, just ones that we played together and others that we talked about after he hung up the mic.
