Queuing up for Dad's Day

I love radio. I'm talking FM, non-profit, commercial-free, community-supported, music-driven radio. I'm talking WMNF, 88.5 on your dial in Tampa Bay and now streaming live everywhere at

Nobody assembles a better playlist than WMNF music director Randy Wynne. Here are Wynne's picks from the last half of his Wednesday three-hour Morning Show, which he dedicated to Father's Day:

Best of Times, Glen Tilbrook, Pandemonium Ensues
Father & Daughter, Paul Simon, Surprise
Winter, Tori Amos, Little Earthquakes
Baby's Coming Home, Jim Henry, Jacksonville
My Dad's Yard, Catie Curtis, Truth from Lies
My Dad's Face, 5 Chinese Brothers, Beggarman Thief
The Randall Knife, Guy Clark, Dublin Blues
Color Him Father, The Winstons, Call Him Father
Father/Daughter Dialogue, Loudon Wainwright III, Grown Man
A Boy Named Sue, Johnny Cash, Essential
My Father's Shoes, Cliff Eberhardt, The Long Road
Father And Son, Cat Stevens, Gold
My Old Man, Steve Goodman, Say It in Private
The Suit, Jerry Douglas, Lookout For Hope
Money Isn't Time, Tom Pirozzolis, Travels
Dad Was A Minister, Tanya Savory, Town To Town
My Dad, Paul Peterson, Donna Reed Show

If you had three hours to spare I'd suggest you go back and listen to the entire show (and drop something in the online tip jar when you do.) If you have even a few minutes, click here, go to the Listen Again buttons and take it as far as you can. This was a great show.


  1. Loved your list. Check out this one, too.

  2. He didn't play "The End" by the Doors?
