[From 7-8:30 p.m. Tuesday]
Great chat with Gabriel Mann and Rob Giles of The Rescues about the group’s new album, “Blah Blah Love and War.” Here are the songs we played from them:
“Did It Really Even Matter”
“Arrow”
“Be My Cure”
“Run Away”
“Love Like Cyanide”
“Get Back”
“Let Me Down Easy”
“Bigger Picture”

Then I did the roundup of upcoming events this weekend and next week, including the Celtic Woman show at the Forum in Binghamton next Tuesday. We played two songs of theirs:
“You Raise Me Up”
“Danny Boy”

And finally, as a birthday tribute to Johnny Cash, we rounded out the show with some tunes from the Man in Black:
“I Walk the Line”
“Ring of Fire”
“Delia’s Gone”
“Cocaine Blues”
“I’ve Been Everywhere”

Next Tuesday at 7 p.m., I’ll host some cast members from “The Mending Monologues,” which will be staged at KNOW Theatre in Binghamton as a fundraiser for the Crime Victims Assistance Center.
