Hi All,

Had another new show on this week...and once again seem to have misplaced the playlist. Perhaps a good New Year's resolution on my end will be to keep better track of these darn things. I do know the show featured three songs from the new Jonatha Brooke cd, The Works. It's an excellent new release featuring previously unpublished Woody Guthrie lyrics arranged and performed by Brooke.

The project and performer were recently featured on NPR 's Weekend Edition
