Tonight’s Theme: Story Time
No, I’m not going to read Lewis Caroll’s Looking Glass tale to you, and I promise nothing from my complete works of Edgar Allan Poe.
While I enjoy a lot of music for the various sounds that are made (the majority of it being without lyrics or words at all), I do enjoy a song that uses words to tell a good story, don’t you?
Some of my favourite storytellers will be featured tonight, including: Buck 65, Tom Waits, Bob Dylan, Leonard Cohen, Joni Mitchell, Lucinda Williams and of course, many more.
