On April 7, 2020, John Prine, one of America’s greatest songmakers and singers passed away in Nashville from the coronavirus. John was a good friend to American Routes, and our thoughts are with his wife Fiona and family, and all those with Oh Boy Records. We had hoped to interview John in the months prior to the virus. It didn’t happen, but this program from 2006 is one of ours and our listeners’ all time favorites.
On this edition of Le Show Harry brings us News of the Atom, Dominion, News of Superbugs, News of Smart Houses, News of Inspector’s General, The Appresidentice, News of the Warm, The Apologies of the Week, plus great music.
It’s a Spring Awakening, and we’ve got songs about bunny hops, rockin’ robins, and fragrant flowers but also lonely hours, gospel prayers and sad losses. In hopes that the real and surreal can commingle with joy and hope in our Corona Global Companion for your consideration and pleasure.
