From DJ Grumpy Grandma 
Sometimes when you have spent about three months in the company of the same person you just wake up and go:
Today is another day
Another way to get this feeling across to you
Tonight will be another night
That’s outta sight cause I know the way to get close to you!
(Could Mike Love have really helped in any significant way with this beauty?)

This week’s set is admittedly pure escapism. As the summer solstice approaches and the heat goes on, it’s an attempt to evoke that feeling when the season was anticipated with a sense of freedom and excitement.  Radio Free Athens continues to be the change we wish to see in the world.
