Dear Listeners:  I hope you enjoyed today's show as much as I did.  It was a terrific thrill for me to have my mom, visiting for the first time in eight years...all the way from Florida, in the studio with me this morning and to have her say a few words.  She's a natural!  I chose songs that she (and dad, who stayed at  home) would like--including a couple polkas such as that rousing, bouncy one from the Misty Mamas.  A set of kitchen-related songs suggested itself since, while mom is here, I'm sleeping on an air mattress on the kitchen floor!  (My apartment is about as small as they come.)  Of course, I found lots of motherhood-themed songs, so I put together a set that included Mother of Pearl and Mother Love.  The show wrapped up with dad's all-time favorite, Kate Smith singing God Bless America.  No matter your political stripe, you can't help but get goosebumps when you hear that beloved singer from 50 years ago belting out that patriotic classic.  So thanks, Mom, for joining me today and for being such a good sport!

Folk Espresso 6/1

Hi Diane I didn't get up to listen to your show but judging by the play list it was terrific- as always! It's fantastic that your Mom joined you! Next time see if your Dad will, too.
