Listener-Submitted Father's Day Playlist

In celebration of Father's Day, I asked Dirty Roots Radio listeners to submit "Dad appropriate" songs...or, well...at least songs about Dad in some way.

Here's what you came up with!

A few suggestions that I shared to start the ball rolling...

The Temptations: "Papa Was A Rolling Stone"



James Brown: "Papa Don't Take No Mess" (also submitted by listener Doug from Maine...great minds, dude....seriously)



Johnny Cash: "A Boy Named Sue"



Two From Lefty in Ohio:

Luther Vandross: "Dance With My Father"



Shep & the Limelights: "Daddy's Home"



Listener Doug from Maine submitted a few...

Bruce Springsteen: "Adam Raised A Cain" (I freakin' love this song...)



NRBQ: "Daddy-O" (but I couldn't find a video...sorry, ya'll)

Credence Clearwater Revival: "Someday Never Comes"



JB in Virginia submitted two...

Steve Goodman: "My Old Man"



Chet Atkins: "I Still Can't Say Goodbye"



And Melissa in Ohio shared a whole handful of suggestions...

Elton John: "My Father's Gun"



Queen: "Father To Son"



Bruce Springsteen: "My Hometown"



Clarence Carter: "Patches"



I think we got 'em all in there.  Thanks, everyone, for your contributions...some great ones here!!!

Tune in to Dirty Roots Radio every Thursday night from 8 to 10 p.m. (central) at www.wgrn.net.
