Then, there’s this fellow who hangs around the station while I’m on air and tries to learn things. I usually call him apprentice, or Chris because that is his name.

This is what he played:

This was my “Psych Myself Up For Falcon Ridge” set. It may have worked.

“Never Fit” – Gandalf Murphy and the Slambovian Circus of Dreams

“He Thinks He’ll Keep Her” – Mary Chapin Carpenter

“Walk Katie Home” – Seth Glier
“Shake Your Moneymaker” – Professor Louie & the Crowmatix
“Runaway Train” – Eliza Gilkyson
“It’s Goodbye and So Long to You” – Red Molly

Hopefully, we’ve met your listening needs. With every week, we improve and our set lists get more adventurous.

Keep it lit.
