As this year is the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 team landing on the moon (and cutting James Taylor’s performance short on July 20th, 1969) I kick things off with a set celebrating the ’69 festival. I also highlight the new Song of the Week “Everyone’s Gone To The Moon” from Robert Ellis, play you some songs from a few favorite moments at the fort, let you in on some amazing tracks from our #Hottakes post, and so much folkin’ more!…
