We celebrate the birthday of Johnny Mercer and feature a number of artists singing Mercer songs, including Rita Coolidge, Eva Cassidy, Don McLean, Carly Simon, Nancy Wilson and more.
We also celebrate the birthdays of Tim Finn, zydeco great Clifton Chenier, and Clint Warwick, who was a member of the original Moody Blues.

We also include music from Dale Watson, Sam Bush and David Grisman, Lee Roy Parnell, Neko Case, C.J. Chenier and more.
