subbing for Raggle Taggle Gypsy

Raggle Taggle Gypsy is a show focusing on folk music from around the world.

But the only folk music I know about is from places like Iowa, Boston, Colorado, and here in Portland.

So as I was subbing today, I guess the only guideline I gave myself was MELLOW. It airs Sunday from 11am to 1pm, so no matter what I played, I felt it should have that “beams of sunlight entering the kitchen as you take your first sips of coffee and maybe do the Sunday crossword or something” feel to it.
