Episode 53: A Card from Minneapolis to the Drunk Tank in New York

While we readjust after the holidays to life back at our home in Vancouver, this week’s songs have us looking other cities. By request, we cover “Fairytale of New York” by The Pogues and “Christmas Card from a Hooker in Minneapolis” by Tom Waits, two songs of urban strife that aren’t so holly or jolly, but range from bittersweet to anxiety-inducing. Thanks again to Andy for the request! You can check out Andy’s blog, The Stopping Point, at wahwriter.wordpress.com.
