Hi All,

The playlist of the 23rd went like this...

1) Hank Williams; I Saw the Light; The Ultimate Collection

2) Townes Van Zandt; T is for Texas; Sunshine Boy
3) Neil Young; Susannah; Americana
4) Hindu Love Gods; Vigilante Man; Hindu Love Gods

Don't ask me why, but for some reason the next three all came from the Jerry MaGuire Soundtrack, which is actually a pretty darn good record.

And then four from the John Prine anthology, Great Days

8) Sabu Visits the Twin Cities Alone

10) Saddle in the Rain
11) Bruised Orange

**Talked on the show about the Billy Bob Thorton movie featuring John Prine.  The movie is called Daddy and Them and you can find it streaming on Netflix.  Prine has a pretty big role.

12) Tom Russell; Box of Visions; Philo So Far--The 20th Anniversary Folk Sampler
13) Bill Staines; Sourdough--The Miner's Song; Philo So Far...
