Autumn Leaves & Trees Show

This week's show is a tribute to the glorious colors of fall, the trees and the leaves. Recent stuff from Dirty Ray and Nanci Griffith mix with Felt, The Soft Boys, and Dumptruck to produce a colorful show!

When I put these theme shows together, it's fun to pull tracks from hither and yon and usually I can work out a great playlist. This week's show turned out to be kind of a downbeat show, unsurprising given the subject matter. I suppose trees and leaves tend to bring out the more contemplative qualities in musicians.
