September 20, 2017 05:00 AM PDT

It's amazing how lives can change in just a very short time. The two recent hurricanes Harvey and Irma destroyed vast areas on the mainland US and in the Caribbean. For this week's show, I've collected some music appropriate to these recent disasters. The program's title, “Wasn't That a Mighty Storm,” is taken from the spiritual from the early 1900s. Its lyrics depict the Galveston Flood from 1900, which caused approximately 12,000 fatalities. We lead off with Tom Rush's classic rendition of that song ... The Sing Out!

Autumn is my favorite time of the year. In the Northeast, the trees become a fire on the mountain. It fades all too quickly. This week on The Sing Out! Radio Magazine I'll share some of my favorite Autumn music, including John McCutcheon, Sally Rogers, Tim O'Brien, and of course Tom Rush and Fairport Convention. There will also be a surprise or two as we celebrate the Autumnal Equinox … on this edition of The Sing Out! Radio Magazine.

When I was a kid my family loved to sing. My Sister had a lovely soprano voice and my Dad sang all these out dated silly songs that at the time embarrassed me. Now I'd give anything to hear him sing again. This week on the Sing Out! Radio Magazine, I've collected some of my favorite sing along songs. Singing always helps to raise the spirits and in these difficult times it just might help. So, sing along … on this week's edition of The Sing Out! Radio Magazine! The Sing Out!

#17-31: Monterrey Turns 50

There has been quite a bit of nostalgic interest in the Monterey Pop Festival as it and the "Summer of Love" turn 50 this year. I was 15-years-old when Monterey Pop happened, and I was drawn to the festival and all the happenings in San Francisco. I have to admit the music and life style has been a huge factor in creating my personal musical taste to this day. When you think of the festival, performances by the Who, Jefferson Airplane, Jimi Hendrix and others immediately come to mind but many players were inspired by traditional acoustic music before they plugged in. This week we'll hear some acoustic recordings from some of the performers from the festival. Stephen Stills, Chris Hillman, Jerry Garcia, Jorma Kaukonen, Janis Joplin all began playing acoustic music. We'll also hear some surprises along with a set devoted to John Philips, who produced the festival along with Lou Adler. Monterey Pop turns 50 ... the acoustic side on the next Sing Out!
