Playlist: Episode #820, January 19, 2020

We’re starting to see some new music and some great upcoming shows after the Christmas break, and we’ve got some eagerly anticipated new music to share and a few shows to chat about. Unfortunately, we lost one of the world’s great songwriters this weekend as the great David Olney died doing what he loved to do. Criminally underappreciated by the masses, Olney was a true songwriters’ songwriter and today we listened to a bunch of his own recordings and those of others performing his songs. What a loss!
