The Hear and Now

The Hear and Now – August 13, 2015

this episode is no longer available


In this episode, Derk Richardson riffs off various anniversaries: a 1969 first date to see Easy Rider; a couple of songs and albums that were recorded or hit the top of the charts on August 13; a pair of Caroline birthdays (Caroline Miksch and Caroline Counts); and the 20th anniversary of this program, born as the Free Form Music Mix in August 1995, thus music from 1995 or thereabouts by Tracy Nelson, Greg Brown, Richard Thompson – RT, Emmylou Harris, Neil Young, John Prine, and Van Morrison. Plus, something brand new from Dave Mihaly. It seemed to make sense at the time. Maybe you had to be there.
