Hi All,

Today's show, partly inspired by the book, went like this...

2) Steve Earle and Shawn Colvin; Ruby Tuesday; Colvin & Earle
3) Terry Allen; Old Friends; This One's for Him
4) Greg Brown; Good Morning Coffee; If I Had Known...

5) Shawn Colvin; Tenderness on the Block; Fat City

7) Rachel Stamp; Carmelita; Hurry Home Early:  The Songs of Warren Zevon
8) Vitamin String Quartet; I Was in the House When the House Burned Down; The String Quartet Tribute to Warren Zevon:  Dad, get me out of this!
