Song of the day: Gary Shearston – "I Get A Kick Out Of You"

As with yesterday’s song from the ’70s, today’s is another retro-retro effort – but the original of this one goes waaay back.

    The news has come through that Gary Shearston has died. He passed away in Armidale (NSW) hospital from a heart condition. Gary was an Australian singer, songwriter – he wrote “Sometime Lovin'” which was recorded in the 60s by Peter, Paul and Mary. He was also, in later years, an ordained priest; in fact, he conducted my uncle's funeral service several years ago.

    He will be sadly missed.
