Carefree spirit of summer

Extra Eclectic - June 7, 2023

This week on Extra Eclectic, guest host Bonnie North sits in for Steve Seel with a blend of music that combines the essence of summer and the vibrant energy of airports, which are seemingly unrelated but go together perfectly. There’s also a theme of nature and spirituality that invites serenity and introspection.
