Day 13: Kid Fears by Indigo Girls.
So just as Kate Pierson from the B52s appeared on the REM album Out of Time, so Michael Stipe from REM made a guest appearance on the Indigo Girls second album simply called Indigo Girls.
This album was released when I was living in hospital accommodation in Westmead (at that time I was working in the Drug and Alcohol unit at Westmead hospital). I still have such a distinct memory of putting on this CD and sitting down to listen to it for the very first time in my little flat, while thinking, “wow this is a really great album”.
My Video Summary
If you click on the Playlist Video for Week 2 (top right of this page) you will be taken to a single video which allows you to play each song in this week's list one after the other. Alternatively, if you watch my own video summary below of this week's songs at the end of the video two playlist links will appear. The one on the left hand side will take you to the video playlist for this week while the one on the right will take you to a single video playlist that allows you to play the complete Covid Island Discs collection for all the currently completed weeks so far — well over 200 songs and counting!
