Capital Radio, 4-18-22: Taxes, Running

Tax Day meant songs about the nation’s least favorite occasion, from the Beatles, Charley Patton, Sharon Jones, Jimi Hendrix and Johnny Paycheck, among others. Then a meditation on money itself, from Elmore James to the Pet Shop Boys with Lefty Frizzell, The Notorious B.I.G. Randy Newman and of course, Barrett Strong.

Noted the birthday of Glen D. Hardin, pianist and arranger for Elvis Presley and Gram Parsons, as well as the 80th of esteemed rock critic Robert Christgau, with eight from his list of favorites. Commemorated last weekend’s show by James McMurtry with a few cuts. And closed with encouraging tunes for those still straggling to finish todays’s Boston Marathon.

Listen to the full archived show here. The setlist follows:
