September Songs - Part 2

Click the play button to listen

September offers an opportunity to refocus on our inner energies and start a new cycle with renewed awareness and intentions—basically back to school and beyond... This segment of the show features more songs inspired by this month, with a special focus on five masterpieces that were recorded during a magical couple of weeks in September 1962.

Happy listening!
