Songs about Spring

Just after the official Spring Equinox on March 19, we aired a full hour of songs about (or otherwise evoking feelings of) springtime! Hallelujah, though we’re still flirting with low temps in the evenings, our daytimes are mostly warm and we’ve EMERGED here in Middle Tennessee into the season of rebirth. Let’s go.

Stream the whole show here and/or listen to a playlist with a few more additions via WNXP’s Spotify. Future requests should be sent via the socials @WNXPNashville. A bonus voicemail introducing your requested song is always appreciated: dial 615-320-9100.
