Great to hear Steel Rail are back! I've loved their release called A Thousand Miles of Snow for years and always wondered where they'd gone. Will definitely look for the new one.

Mike, I've been enjoying this week's show. I have a question: You've been playing John McCutcheon's "Songs From The Quarantine", but it does not seem to be available on iTunes. Do you know where I can obtain a copy?

Thanks Norm and Joanne. Joanne, John McCutcheon's "Songs from the Quarantine" is available on his website.
