(clip Groucho and Thelma)

Spring songs are in the air, and spun from vinyl. Hope Record Store Day was good to you. Th esweet

season is shere--let's live it up. I'm PC and this is the VE

Gabor Szabo: Spring Song

Simon & Garfunkel: April Come She Will

The VE with spring songs--Simon and Garfunkel sing of the changing seasons in "April Come She Will,"

and Gabor Szabo's jazz classic from abnout the same time, "Spring Song." Talk Talk's 1986 album The

Colour Of Spring featured an arresting album cover of multicolored moths, and a reflective downbeat

collection of songs including this one, "April 5th."

Talk Talk: April 5th

Rickie Lee Jones: Spring Can Really Hang You Up The Most

The VE with Spring Songs...the American Songbook is packed with them..."April In Paris,"It Might As Well

be Spring,"Spring Is Here,"...Rickie Lee Jones put her unique spin on standards in 1991 on the LP Pop

Pop...we heard her moody readin gof "Spriing Can Really Hang You Up the Most." Okay, time to really

class up the show with--The Butthole Surfers....a spirng song?! This one was given away first as a free

flexi-disc...it's the first of a couple or sort-of-sprinig-songs, by some rough characters

Butthole Surfers: Lonesome Bulldog

The Pogues: Dirty Old Town

The VE with Spring songs...mnaly yes, but I like it too...it's an Irish Spring with The Pogues from the Elvis

Costello-produced Rum, Sodomy and The Lash, and "Dirty Old Town."

Spring is a short season up in Minnesots where The Jayhawks still turn their collar to the cold and damp. If

April is the cruelest month, they capture that grey-sky feel on the album Tommorow The Green Grass, and

"See Him On The Street."

The Jayhawks: See Him On the Street

Ritchie Havens Here Comes The Sun

The VE, with the promise of spring, from Richie Havens, and The Jayhawks

(break)

It's spring songs, and now the trees are almost green...The Yardbirds, to begin a few from spring, in the

sixties...

The Yardbirds: Shapes Of Things

Rolling Stones: Dandellion

Stevie Wonder: I Was Made To Love Her

The VE with Spring songs, and blossoms blooming...The Rolling Stones picking Dandellions, and the scent

of magnolia, with Stevie Wonder....and The Grateful Dead....

Grateful Dead: Sugar Magnolia

Van Morrison: Starting A New Life

Foo Fighters: This Will Be Our Year

Dou you say that every spring? maybe this time it sticks. The Foo Fighters doing The Zombies' "This Will

Be Our Year," from last April's Record Store Day Release Medium rare...and Van Morrison on Tupelo

Honey, and "Starting A New Life."

Spring songs on the VE...for the blessing of the new season, there's always something lost as well....

Led Zeppelin: The Rain Song

Billie Holiday: I Get Along Without You Very Well

And that's the VE. To sound off an hour of spring songs....Billie Holiday...and Led Zeppelin.
