This week’s show features songs about dreams. Unbelievably, the library does not contain either “Sweet Dreams” by The Eurythmics or “Dream Weaver” by Gary Wright. While “Dream” by The Everly Brothers was supposed to be included, an editing error omitted it as you’ll hear. Due to time issues, there are a few more than usual digital clips for which I apologize.

While the name of today’s show is “Peter, Paul & Mary”, it doesn’t feature any of that folk group’s songs. Instead, the songs are by artists whose name begins with either Peter, Paul or Mary. Also there are a few songs with Mary in the title and one, with a “Paul” name and a “Mary” in the lyrics (I’m sure you can figure out which that is!).
