In response to your Tracy Chapman comments. She has put out at least 7 cds' (on a major label).
IF you do listen to more of her songs, I would recommend her " NEW BEGINNING " - cd. The song is
REMEMBER THE TINMAN. also, if you want to continue with another OZ related song, you can play
the cd : GENIUS LOVES COMPANY - DUETS w/ RAY CHARLES. The song title escapes me now.
The song is a duet done with Elton John.

Dear Jonathan,
You've done it again -- another beautiful show filled with fabulous songs interpreted by great vocalists! We've spent the past four hours this snowy day, beside the fireplace, and streaming your selections. As another exquisite Nancy LaMott song comes on, we bid you goodbye for another week.

Happy New Year.

Of all the music you play on your show, my absolute favorite piece is Kate McGarry's haunting version of "The Heather on the Hill". I have loved it for years and in fact, today as it came on, I made a mental note to treat myself to the CD because I love it so.

However: I was only half-listening as you spoke to Frederick Loewe after you played the song (was dismayed to hear his negative reaction). Was that a joke? Isn't he long dead? I am sooooo confused. What did I misunderstand? Please please explain. Thank you ~

Wonderful to hear Eric Comstock on your show just now. Thanks. He is one of our favorites.

Jonathan, I am a big fan of Tracy Chapman. I had an old Jag that played cassette tapes and I used to drive up and down to Providence to visit my daughter at school. I had two of her tapes and I played them over and over. Just listening to that song brought back memories. Makes me want to reconnect with her on ITunes!
Happy New Year and keep up the good work.
Best regards,
