Groundhog Day is the biggest celebration of the year for us meteorologists and weather nerds. It has also proved a fertile topic for songs, which start the show. And even better, February 5 is National Weather Person’s Day! The first hour of the show features songs about Groundhog Day, Groundhogs, winter, and weather.
Presidents Day is February 21, so up next up you’ll hear songs about 20th and 21st Century presidents. February is Black History month, so we’ll finish with some soulful songs that inspired the Civil Rights Movement.
Featured artists include John McCutcheon, Arlo Guthrie, Paul Simon, Jimmie Rodgers, Buffy Saint Marie, John Hiatt, Leo Kottke, Joni Mitchell, Richie Havens, Ry Cooder, Joan Baez, Emmylou Harris, and the Blind Boys of Alabama.
