Playlist: Episode #860, Oct. 25, 2020

2020 strikes again and takes another music icon/legend. This weekend, Jerry Jeff Walker lost his battle with throat cancer, and we’ve lost one of the greats of songwriting and performing. Today on the show, a heartfelt tribute featuring words and music from Todd Snider, Jerry Jeff’s biggest fan and close friend, and a whole lot of music from the man himself. After that, we’ve got a pile of new and timely music to round things out.
