Playlist: Episode #767, Nov. 25, 2018

A large part of this episode was inspired by a fine night of country music this weekend put together by Sean Burns of CKUW’s Boots & Saddle. We spun some of his special guests and some of the great classics covered on stage. We also got back into playing German requests, took a trip to Mexico, and spun some Steel Belted style roots-rock classics. Best of all, we were joined by co-host, Jeremy, The Whispering Ghost.
