Sunday, January 30 on The Mulberry Tree 

Hello,

This Sunday, January 30 on The Mulberry Tree, I feature songs about girls...all kinds of girls!  The reason for this inspiration is that my niece Elyza turns 10 years old on Sunday, and I wanted to honor her in a special way.  I'll also have family members announcing my station ID's during the show.  I thought Elyza would enjoy that.  Join me in wishing her a special birthday.  For this week's sneak peek playlist video, I chose "Girl from North Country" as performed by Bob Dylan and Johnny Cash…

Sunday, January 16 on The Mulberry Tree 

Hello,

This Sunday, January 16 on The Mulberry Tree, we can sit back and enjoy an hour of music that's filled with variety. For me, this wonderful opportunity to bring you music each Sunday evening is about creating an adventure for your ears.  It's a lot like mixing a song in the music studio in order to achieve just the right mix of sounds, styles and tempos, and leaving some space here and there to keep your mind open.  For this week's sneak peek playlist video, The Cactus Blossoms perform "Powder Blue,"…

Sunday, January 9 on The Mulberry Tree 

Hello,

I open my program this Sunday, January 9 with two songs from Joni Mitchell.  I chose my two favorite Joni songs to share with you as I congratulate her on receiving a Kennedy Center Honor.  My sneak peek playlist video for this week features Joni herself, graciously articulating her reaction to receiving such a prestigious honor. The remainder of the program will mainly consist of songs I aired for the first time on The Mulberry Tree in 2021.  They aren't necessarily new releases, just new to the…

Sunday, January 2 on The Mulberry Tree 

Hello,

In spite of the unseasonably warm weather of late, I decided to prepare us for the inevitable: cold, snow and ice.  It's part of what we experience here in the Ozarks, most times not predictable and at times, mysterious and magical.  For this week's sneak peek playlist video, I've got James Taylor performing "The Frozen Man" from his album "New Moon Shine."  Hope to meet you around the tree with these wonderful musicians I chose just for you.

Sunday, December 12 on The Mulberry Tree 

Hello,

This Sunday, December 12 on The Mulberry Tree, I have a theme in mind: boats, ships, sailing, and the sea.  There's endless songs to choose from on these subjects, but for me it's about setting a mood, so I'm pretty deliberate when choosing songs and where to place them in the playlist.  I hope you enjoy the ride, along with these fine musicians and songwriters, which includes Wyatt Easterling, who performs this week's sneak peek playlist video "Stay in the Boat."  The song offers encouragement…
