Hour One: Birthday boy, Jimmy Dorsey (2/29/1904) opens the show with the Johnson Rag...for our Guest Host Siobhan Johnson. Co-host Sam Davis tells us the songs he wants played at his wake...what?! US Congress shenanigans prompts Lana to say, "We legislate by the week," and a Jim Grimes Job Scene Report ends the hour.
Hour Two: Adam Perschbacher, "graphic designer by day and a cartoonist at heart" joins the conversation and fills us in on The Pharmacy Gallery and Art Group...upcoming show March 6 and 7 at 711 S. 5th, Springfield, IL. Hugh has Adam thinking about "hand-colored buckshot" and playing the dulcimer backwards and upside down. Ummmm.
Hour Three: Joanne Weaver, a transplant from California, joins us from NYC where she owns a recruiting business and sings "moody dark classics in outer space." We play Nature Boy, Sway, and Golden Earrings...beautiful voice. Birthdays finish the hour: Marian Anderson, Zero Mostel, Joey Greco, Gretchen Christopher..."Come Softly To Me."
