"I wrote 'Jesus Was A Capricorn (Owed To John Prine)' because I was so influenced by John. When I heard his songs I felt like his writing had kicked me into doing it. You take things from all over the place, though you don’t always admit it! I was really influenced by Roger Miller, Shel Silverstein and Mickey Newbury. Everybody you admire influences you somehow in your art."

This is a couple of years newer than the stuff I play, but I wholeheartedly approve! And I'm not undecided about doing so!

Your last marathon premium saved the day after my iPod died (temporarily) yesterday--can't wait to hear what you come up with this year (but I'm hoping for a roaring '20s theme!)

@SSS HateHto beba nnoodge but you shouldn't play Judy Garland on a crank Victrola. The later era shellac is not designed to stand up to weight of the reproducer
