Saturday Morning
Saturday May 2nd, 2020 with Pat Moore
Today it's all about songs that lift your spirits - happy songs, triumphant songs, or songs that just make you feel good. I asked my Facebook followers to offer suggestions, and I ended up with many more songs than I can play even in 3 hours...

Good morning! As mentioned in my show highlights, this show is specifically about making you feel good. Many of the songs I'm playing today were requested by listeners who sent me suggestions from my facebook shout-out. In hour 3 you'll hear a few samples of some of the great live Facebook broadcasts that people have been producing since the pandemic "lockdown" started. You'll hear a little of Shawn Tavenier's "Silver Lining Sessions" and some of Tyler Kealey's "Live from the Basement" shows, and a cut from Missy Burgess' new release "The Blue Train, Live". Get comfy, get ready for 3 hours of music to make you feel good.

What a great list! Here’s a tune I penned right at the beginning of the pandemic. It’s about sharing positive things instead of all the negative and fear mongering stuff. I’m so grateful to live in Ontario. Even though as a full time musician, my career looks bleak at the moment, I’m grateful to be healthy and home and safe. Anyway, here’s the link to the tune on Spotify.
