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.

Tamla Motown with a seasoning of blues, folk and country. Kirsten pays tribute to the passing of Roger Giles, stalwart of the Auckland folk scene for decades, generous friend to so many musicians, and determinedly himself on all occasions, blowing on his jug and adding to festival atmosphere wherever he went, he will be much missed.
