Friday night extra 20.3.20 relaxing music mix

The music tonight included three tracks chosen by Bishop Stephen Cottrell who was unexpectedly delayed and could not be with us.  Our birthdays competition was won by Nicola in Brentwood. The vintage chart came from this week in 1968 and included Otis Redding, Sitting on the dock of the bay. Rene e-mailed in to state that she thought Otis had the right idea for these strange times. Responses suggested we all agreed.
