Great show today, Mike. I particularly appreciate your inclusion of something new from Mary Chapin Carpenter. The new record is superb, and getting a lot of praise. She's so rarely heard on air any more. The entire show has been well worth the listen.

Thanks Joanne. I like Mary Chapin Carpenter's new album very much.

Exceptional selection of songs for respite and reflection, Mike, thank you! I'm a dedicated MCC fan too, and have been appreciating her 'Songs from Home' series on YouTube during this strange time.

Thanks Maria. I've seen some of MCC's home videos and enjoyed them very much.
