Welcome to the latest Episode of the Smooth Groovers Review.
Season 4, episode 26, hence: SG4-26 and we’re a bit early this week.
We hope you enjoyed the previous show, the EW&F special.
This week we start the show, as we often do with another tune from the world of TV and film.
This time its the theme to Stingray. A 1964 Sc i-Fi action series that we enjoyed as kids
(and some still today!). The theme was written by Barry Gray.
