2 hours, 30 minutes
First broadcast:
Wednesday 07 August 2013

Acoustic singer and film maker Jack Johnson chooses two more songs in the Tracks Of My Years. For his midweek selection, Jack picks a wonderfully evocative hit by Bill Withers along with one of the strongest songs by The Cure, which Jack reveals became an unlikely wedding track. There's another round of the PopMaster music quiz and Michael reads more love song dedications.
