Bob Ruzicka? Wasn't he the singer-songwriter who was also a dentist? Great selection of tunes, BTW.

So lovely, Mike. I was really moved by Norah Jones' gorgeous rendition of "(Talk to Me of) Mendocino," remembering when Kate and Anna McGarrigle sang it in honour of my brother, Gary, here in Toronto at Hugh's Room, shortly after his death. Also very poignant was Dave Van Ronk's heartful performance of Joni Mitchell's "Urge for Going."
