Artist Track Comments
Big Guitars from Texas  Holiday for Hoss   Favoriting I like this track but I mostly play it when I need an extra minute to get ready for my show-- like at 6 o'clock in the morning!

Irma Thomas  Hold on to God's Changing Hand   Favoriting Even an atheist like me is moved by the passion of gospel music-- and the Soul Queen of New Orleans sings with passsion as well as anyone
