Chris Smither “She Said She Said”
from Call Me Lucky (Signature Sounds Recordings www.signaturesounds.com 2018) N  —Didn't meant to play this one. Damn technology. Should have just brought in cassettes and vinyl!


Jackson Browne “For a Dancer”
from Late For the Sky (Asylum 2014) —The first half hour of this show goes out in memory of the son of Leroy Francis Kasten Sr. and Mary Evelyn Schmitt: Leroy Francis Kasten, Jr., born in 1929 in Chicago and passed at the age of 88 on June 10, 2018 in Salt Lake City.


Rosanne Cash “500 Miles”
from The List (Manhattan 2009) —also known as "500 Miles Away from Home" or "Railroaders' Lament", probably written by Hedy West, and recorded by many artists including the Kingston Trio and Peter Paul and Mary, from whom my dad probably learned it.


John Prine “Fish And Whistle”
from Souvenirs (Oh Boy 2000) —Roy Kasten, Jr. loved John Prine and got to see him in concert recently. I believe one of his first dates with my mom Bobbie Kasten was to a John Prine show in Chicago.


Steve Goodman “City of New Orleans” —Patron songwriter of all Chicago Cub fans, Steve Goodman, and this song in particular, was a favorite of Roy Kasten, Jr.


James Talley “This Land Is Your Land”
from Woody Guthrie & Songs of My Oklahoma Home (2000) —No song was more popular at family sing-alongs than Woody's masterpiece (OK, Go Tell Aunt Rhody was close).


New Lost City Ramblers “Tom Dooley”
from Vol. 2 (1960) —Roy Kasten, Jr. loved the New Lost City Ramblers, one of the great old time string bands of the folk revival era. This song was a folk revival classic my dad knew on the banjo, though he played the shorter, less violent version as done by the Kingston Tri


The Byrds “Turn! Turn! Turn! (To Everything There Is A Season)”
from The Byrds [BOX SET] [Disc 1] (1965) —This perfect song, written by Pete Seeger and the authors of the King James bible, was sung hundreds of times by my father and his folk-loving friends in the '60s. It is socially conscious spirituality at its purest.


Pete Seeger “Where Have All the Flowers Gone?”
from The World of Pete Seeger (1970) —Written by Pete Seeger in 1955 and published in Sing Out! One of the great modern folk songs, a song written before the Vietnam War, but which became one of the most important anti-war songs of any era. Roy Kasten, Jr. would have sung this song many times


Van Morrison “Into The Mystic”
from Moondance (Warner Bros. 1970) —Van has recorded so many songs of healing, and even named an album after the concept, but this is the most healing of all the healing songs we have.
