radio boise playlist for week of 01/29/07 - - Gathering carols for Groundhog Day!

The latter part of this show focused on an often under-appreciated friend of ours.

Whether viewed as folklore's harbinger of Spring or as maligned garden pest, as a euphemism for a triflin' woman (?!?), as merely a handy lyrical device or just plain good eatin', the groundhog stands tall in American song.


Spring is coming - - apparently...
