Playlist: Episode #884, Apr. 11, 2021

Today we start off with a tribute to friends old and new who have passed away over the past week in music history. I’m very late to the party in discovering Winnipeg’s own Kipp Kocay, and I’m sad that I didn’t seek him out before his untimely passing this week. We also fondly remember the music of John Bottomley, Jesse Winchester, and Merle Haggard. I ran out of time so didn’t get to John Prine, but certainly love and miss him as well. Hour 2 is all new music culled from new releases over the past couple of weeks, and there are some gems!
