Lori McKenna - Sunday Breakfast - 2014

by John Platt
Deirdre Hynes

Lori McKenna is a Massachusetts singer-songwriter-mother, who's successfully balanced a career and family life. Although she's had artists like Faith Hill and Tim McGraw turn her songs into country hits, she's resisted the siren call of Nashville to stay in the town where she grew up. In this Sunday Breakfast session, she's accompanied by her longtime pal and sideman, Mark Erelli, a pretty fine singer-songwriter in his own right, on guitar and mandolin.

Question of the Day: Is the Weather Really Getting Worse?

by Morning Show

On this day in 1950 the "Storm Of The Century" tore through the Eastern US. A Category 5 by today's standards, this monster cyclone--The Great Appalachian Storm--brought Hurricane force winds to the mountains of New England and Sub-zero temperatures to the deep South.

Summon up some stormy song suggestions as we splash through this wet windy and warm late November morning...wondering if weather will be the most changeable and troubling aspect of our collective future.
