7:00 p.m. Singer-Songwriter Series: The Music of John Prine NEW!
John Prine is not new to our station by any stretch, but he is our newest featured Singer-Songwriter for this coming week. Considered primarily a performer in the country-folk genre, John Prine’s stories of love, loss and social justice were often tinged with a touch of sarcasm and wit. Perhaps his most famous composition is Angel From Montgomery, which became an iconic identifier for Bonnie Raitt. We kick off his week tonight.
Let’s go, folks. Get on board The Mermaid Musical Express as we take you through your Saturday. We’ve got listeners from Ireland, the UK, Chile, Portugal, Spain, Germany, The Netherlands, Switzerland, Poland, Texas, New York, and Colorado on this morning, Join them.
