    Steve; Really enjoy the the programming. Especially the GW stuff as it’s what I grew up with and it’s my kind of playing. One slight correction on program #96. The trird track labled as “Jazz Baby” is incorrect. The actual title is “You’ve Gotta See Mama Every Night’ originally recorded by Sophie Tucker. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h4Nhy5tIpPM Keep up the good work Steve and thanks again.

    Thanks, Edwin, for the heads-up. You’re quite correct – that Home Fed track was mis-titled. That’s one of the problems of getting a pile of unnamed tracks and going through and trying to ID them. It drives me nuts sometimes! BUT, on further research, the YouTube video and most of the versions that I have in my library get the title wrong, albeit slightly. It’s “You’ve Got To See Mamma Ev’ry Night (or you can’t see Mamma at all)” – http://levysheetmusic.mse.jhu.edu/collection/157/138 (And to be fair, many of the record companies back then also slipped up on some titles.)
    I’m correcting the playlist for 96.
