Deep Dive wants to make it with you

This week on Deep Dive we focus for one hour on David Gates and Bread. We find a diary underneath a tree, meet the Guitar man, offer up Everything I Own, and wonder If. And we also have a very special Fun Guy guest on the show.

Tune in at 4 PM Eastern on Monday, 6 AM Tuesday in Australia. Or try 6 AM Eastern Wednesday, which is 8 PM in Eastern Australia.

If you have an artist or a band you love, email me with their name, your favourite songs, and your memories of them. Better still attach a sound recording and join me on the show, just like our special Fun Guy guest.
