Playlist Oct. 15

First 20 minutes taken up with fire updates and weather report, and several breaks for fire information during the show, so it’s a shorter playlist than usual.

This was a tough show to put together.  Mindful of all the suffering and chaos being experienced by fire victims and refugees, and stricken with grief at the sudden loss of a dear old friend.  I hoped the music might help people – including me – find some beauty and joy in adversity.
