  1. omg Just heard Piston Fionn.It was an emotional reaction for me, as it was the song for Catherine, my daughter. I haven’t heard it in awhile, since it was on the tape only. Thank you for including it, and ” the last Rose of summer”. ( Garrison Keillor sang it last night on WBEZ) such a beautiful song and so appropriate for this time of year. Thank you also for including me in the “angels”…
