Episode 249 – March 26, 2020

Reality? Sheltering in place means staying home with family or, in some cases, by ourselves or with our pets. Time to reflect, time for the least painful gallows humor, and, oh yes, music that adds reflection without pain. We’ll do our best here on Blue Moon this morning with new sounds from The Haden Triplets, Tami Neilson, Paul Burch and others alongside a mix of vintage tracks. Bob Dylan, Jerry Lee Lewis, John Prine, and Michael Nesmith. Here’s hoping that you’re taking good care of yourself and using these times to reflect on the plight of others who are tripped up every day by a lack of empathy. As actress Meryl Streep is quoted as saying: “The great gift of human beings is that we have the power of empathy”. #exerciseempathy during these times. In fact, at all times. Stream us at kowsfm.com and, if you’re within our antenna’s earshot, here Sonoma County, KOWS Community Radio. 92.5 FM.
