Episode 16: Mom's Day

[via the swinging sixties]

It's a special Mother's Day edition of the WS podcast. She was a big part of my own musical education--leaving that cassette of Neil Young in the car (one of my first posts), taking me to see The Band's The Last Waltz when it was re-released in theaters when I was in high school, and teaching me the classics--and I like to think I've paid it back with introductions to the Old 97's, Spoon, and the New Pornographers over the years. Thanks, mom.


Neil Young--"Tell Me Why"
The Band--"Up On Cripple Creek (Live)"
Sharon Jones & the Dap-Kings--"Nobody's Baby"
The Rolling Stones--"Mother's Little Helper"
Spoon--"Something To Look Forward To"
The Beach Boys--"God Only Knows (1967 Rehearsal)"
The Old 97's--"Mama Tried"
David Bowie--"Changes"
The New Pornographers--"Testament To Youth In Verse"

  1. That's my boy!!! Thank you, thank you for my mother's day treat. Love the blending of old and new in this episode. Don't ever forget the old...
    And don't forget that Mama tried...
    Your biggest fan, swinging sixties Mom

  2. Way to go Art! You made your mother's day. She forwarded the playlist to me in the Bay Area -- great combo of songs. Glad to see Bowie from our London days. But where are John, Paul, and George?!!
