Friday Night Music Picks--Request Night!

Perhaps crazily I have offered to take requests this week for this regular feature.  First up, someone wanted to hear some Bruce Cockburn, and as it happens, he recorded one of the great albums of the 1990s, Charity of Night, here's the kickoff track. Poetic, plus Rob Wasserman on bass.  Below that, Wall of Voodoo does "Ring of Fire" live 1982.  Below that, Taj Mahal, who turned 71 today, does some Leadbelly, still topical.   Then we find Joe "King" Carrasco doing "Buena."  Below that, Richard and Linda Thompson from 1975 with their great "A Heart Needs a Home."  Then "Miss Sarajevo" live with U2, Eno, Pavarotti. And Paul Robeson with "Ol Man River," from the movie.
