A good mix of music this morning. Just like the show’s name. Just short of a dozen new releases were sampled, some French language tracks, some lesser known songs by big stars like Etta James (The Pick Up) and Jerry Butler and some personal favorites by Joe Simon (Chokin Kind), Willie Nelson (Poncho Lefty) and Gwen McRae (Rockin Chair) and the saddest Curtis Mayfield song I know (Eddie, You Should Know Better).
