Dennis Elsas with Graham Nash

I had the pleasure of sitting down with Graham Nash this past summer, shortly after he had overseen the production and release of CSNY 1974 – a beautiful audio/visual collection capturing the band during one of their most memorable tours. He had also recently completed his fascinating autobiography, Wild Tales, chronicling his historic musical and personal journey.

Ellis Paul - Sunday Breakfast - 2014

Jeremy Rainer

For some 25 years, Ellis Paul has been one of his generation's consistently outstanding songwriters. A Maine native, he broke out of Boston, where he was a perennial Boston Music Awards winner. Since moving to Virginia for family reasons a decade ago, he's continued to tour 100-150 nights a year and managed to keep his writing fresh. For his latest CD, Chasing Beauty, he went to Atlanta to collaborate with Kristian Bush of Sugarland fame.

Is it Monday already? But I haven't finished reading the Sunday papers, and I haven't caught up on my sleep, and I didn't do all the things I was gonna do over the weekend. Oh well, we can commiserate with Monday songs as we ease ourselves into the week. Leave your songs in the "suggestion box" below and we'll spin a set after the work bell rings at 9am.

Here's what we played:

Calexico "Maybe on Monday"

T-Bone Walker "Call It Stormy Monday (but Tuesday Is Just as Bad)"
