I am not a fan of country music (although I used to listen to it – in my youth). I do make occasional exceptions, however.
I also listened to a lot of public radio.
One day while listening to the radio a singer-songwriter was interviewed. She spoke of her home in Alexandria (she had a house on one of the cobblestone streets) and of playing at local venues. Then she sang a song that I fell in love with enough to buy her album.
A friend of ours really liked her and invited me to the Birchmere to see her play, but that was in the days when I didn’t like live music.
