This broadcast presents new releases from Lauren Falls, Becca Stevens, Flora Purim, Steven Feifke and Jane Monheit, with birthday shoutouts to Holly Cole, Maria Schneider and June Christy among others. A smattering of holiday fare in the second hour, but first, a focus on the latest Grammy Nominees, as it's been a better year for women. Thanks for listening and please support the artists you hear by purchasing their music during this time of pandemic so they can continue to distract, comfort, provoke and inspire.
