Good morning everyone. A few technical challenges here in the studio today, but we are pushing through and there is plenty of good music to listen to today!

I'm a barley corn ballad aficianado and I haven't heard this version before- wow, they really get descriptive and enthusiastic in this one, don't they!

Also- the many references to barley in your music this week led me to look it up on the internet, where I learned that it was a main grain for ancient people, used to make bread and beer going all the way back to the Iron Ages. No wonder people like to sing about it!
