Kirsten marks the sad passing of American folk music legend John Prine, playing lots of his songs and songs by people he influenced. There was a presidential condolence from the president of the Republic of Ireland. Roseanne Cash quotes from John Prine's great song "Angel From Montgomery": "Just give me something I can hold onto."  A terrible loss. A lot of great music. He was dealt a rough hand by the Trump administration, passing away from complications of the coronavirus. Thanks for the decades of great songs. RIP.
