Eighty-Something (4/13/13)

John & Jessica have recently been working with, and inspired by musicians who are in their 80’s. Annie Ross, Dave Frishberg, and Bucky Pizzarelli are still making beautiful music. And we get to sample some of it today, along with some other favorite songs, including the new, the obscure, and a few about baseball.
