* Track details of the three song segue coming out of the 9:30 pm news are lost in the tape flip, bar the Otis Redding one.
Thanks to the internet, I can confirm that the unknown track is a country cover of the Slim Dusty song, with banjo backing. At the start of the show, Kershaw
lists many of the artists he will be playing in the programme. Among them is country star Garth Brooks, who does not appear elsewhere. So it's logical to deduce that
this is the performer of the song. Strangely though, an internet search draws a complete blank for him ever releasing a song with this title.
