PLAYLIST FOR “SALUTE TO MOTHER’S DAY” (AN ARCHIVE RE-BROADCAST) 5.12.18

How can you improve on perfection? Don’t ask me, but while I was pondering this irrelevant question last Saturday night, I played a show from May of 2017.  Most of the singers were mothers (in the best sense), I tossed in a hefty helping of motherly advice, plus a couple of momma’s boys to help me wish all mothers a happy Mother’s Day.
