Mississippi was admitted to the Union as the 20th state on this date in 1817. So today we're looking for songs that mention Mississippi - the state or the river. Share your favorites and we'll spin a set after 9am.

Here's what we played:

Jesse Winchester "Mississippi You're on My Mind"

The Doobie Brothers "Black Water"

Bob Dylan "Mississippi"

June Tabor and the Oyster Band "Mississippi"

Joan Jett & The Blackhearts "New Orleans"
