Gazing dimly into the future, I can see a figure, a man -- it's Eric Walters. And he'll be back on the radio next week.
But for this week, I'm holding down the fort on Wide Ear Folk, spinning two hours of my mellow favorites: new songs from Matthew E. White, James McMurtry and Tall Tales & The Silver Lining, plus oldies by Woody Guthrie, Pentangle (RIP Jon Renbourn) and The Byrds.
And some song about Nostradamus as well, if my crystal ball is in working order.

Welcome to my 'First Quarter Faves of 2015' edition of the Lost Music Saloon. I've selected some of my favorite songs of the year to kind of give a snapshot of the year in music, Saloon-style, so far. It's shaping up to be a good year, so enjoy!
