We celebrated Veterans Day by playing songs from America's past related to veterans, either by, for, or about.
Jimmy Driftwood seemed to resonate with listeners, so we played quite a few songs from the former Arkansas schoolteacher-turned-folk-musician.
We also had enough of a show (thanks to only just a small sports preemption) to bring back the Mayberry Corner Trivia contest.
Thanks for listening, and we'll see you Sunday, 16 November.
