A Little Bunny Told Me This Is a Folk Music Day, So We’ve Got John Prine With Our AOW and Our ‘Folk Music From A-To-Z’ EP, Sunday, April 17, 2022

Good Morning, Music Lovers! We’ve got a great music day today, particularly if you like folk music…so, I’m all in. We’ve got our great multi-artist playlist to kick it all off!

Here’s your Easter Sunday line-up:

7:00 p.m. Album of The Week: Common Sense by John Prine NEW!

Released in 1975, Common Sense is John Prine’s fourth studio album. It was produced by Steve Cropper and recorded at Ardent Studios in Memphis and Larabee Stuios in Los Angeles. The album features help from old friends Bonnie Raitt, Jackson Browne, Glenn Frey, and bassist Donald “Duck” Dunn who played in Booker T. & The MG’s with Cropper. John Prine was a master at his craft, a master storyteller with a wry sense of humor who always had something to say. His masterpiece, Angel From Montgomery, helped put Bonnie Raitt on the map.

Come on. The Bunny commands you to tune in today. Pull up a hard-boiled egg and a Mimosa and get in on all the fun here from The Mermaid Lounge. You won’t regret it.
