Great line up for Saturday morning. I know it's posted now, but I prefer to listen on the day. It makes my Saturday much more enjoyable. And nice to see you included both Billy Joe (a personal hero of mine) and Jerry Jeff.

Guess I just skimmed over the playlist the other day. Thanks so much for playing Pharis & Jason Romero - I'm a huge fan. Have their two recent releases and play them all the time.
