We were doing a conga line around the studio with that last song!  Thank you for listening to LoveLane Radio.  Spring showers inspired our next tunes about rainy weather.  Time to cuddle as we listen to these favorites from Neil Sedaka, Eddie Rabbit, John Denver and James Taylor.

Thank you for joining us at LoveLane Radio.  This is your host Linda and you are listening to our Spring Fever Show.  A famous British poet Alfred Tennyson wrote, “In the Spring, a young man’s fancy lightly turns to thoughts of love.”  Hope you enjoy these songs of love by Malo, the Bellamy Brothers and Stevie Wonder.  One of the leaders of Malo was Jorge Santana, brother of guitarist Carlos Santana.

In Spring, our fancy can also turn to baseball, so we’ll take a few minutes to salute baseball fever as well.  Feel free to sing along with this classic tune, “Take Me Out to the Ball Game,” played by Dodger Stadium Organist Helen Dell.  We’ll follow this song with baseball favorites by Bruce Springsteen and John Fogerty.  Play ball!

SONG 30 Centerfield John Fogerty

 

Hope you are having fun!  This next song was inspired by JFK’s daughter Caroline Kennedy and was written and recorded in Memphis by Neil Diamond.  It can be heard in many sports venues but is most famously played before the bottom of the 8th Inning at every Boston Red Sox Home game.  It’s another sing-along!

 

SONG 31 Sweet Caroline Neil Diamond
