Song List for May 16th, 2017 1960s memories

With tongue in cheek, I previewed this show by saying I was in need of some comfort music, so I was going to play tunes from a more tranquil, peaceful time, the 1960s.  My brother's response on my facebook page was:  "Ah yes, the tranquil 60s when everybody got along, liked the president, and we never had any protests or riots. But we certainly had lots of good music."

And so I played:

1. John Denver - Take Me Home Country Roads
2. Joe and Eddie - Children Go Where I Send Thee
3. Gordon Lightfoot - Early Morning Rain

4. Joni Mitchell - Michael from Mountains
