This morning we celebrated the 8th Annual Rejection Day, counter-Valentine’s Day special. This meant songs from Hank, Patsy, Richard Thompson and John Prine—they must be part of every year’s special due to their large catalog of sad songs of rejection.

Check the playlist for more, and thanks for all the great requests!
