The huge amount of hearts and arrows sent digitally in response to our request for St. Valentine’s Day music was appreciated. The incoming music covered both sides of relationships. Whether hearts afire or hearts asunder, songs of survival or songs of sinking, middle fingers raised or arms around your lover….all moods, both down swings and emotional highs, were accounted for.
This year we present 44 songs. We broke up the music into Part One and Part Two. We could tell you how the music came from all over the globe and represented bluegrass, soul, zydeco, folk, alt country and mostly mixtures of all of the above. We could say a lot but it is the artists who really tell (or sing) the tales.
