Bodies Of Water And Those Who Choose To Cross Them

Today's theme is all about the oceans, seas, rivers and lake that cover our planet and the intrepid souls who navigate their expanses for adventure, pillage, escape and trade.

First thing is first, though it has been a while since I have played the station's new adds (let's face it, I have had a lot of ground to cover over the last few shows).  Here are some new adds for this week...then onto the theme.  Enjoy:
