Emmylou Harris “Wish We Were Back In Missouri”
from Songbird: Rare Tracks & Forgotten Gems (Rhino/Warner Bros. 2007) —2 hours left in the Magnolia Studios, a warm welcome to Kathy Weir, it's only right to have a Weir at the other Mic. this is a Songwriter Showcase Greatest Hits.


Bob Dylan “She Belongs To Me”
from Bringing It All Back Home (Columbia 1965) —Although you can't stuff 25 years into 2 hours, Larry's favorite Dylan tune was "Desolation Row", it's a little too long.


Kate Wolf “Telluride”
from Gold In California - A Retrospective of Recordings (1975-1985) (Rhino 1993) —Kate died in 1986 at the young age of 44, she died a year before Larry started the show, but she would show up regularly on the playlist and request line.


Bill Morrissey “Birches”
from Night Train (New Rounder 1993) —Tough to pick just one favorite song, but this classic by the late Bill Morrissey was at least tied for first,


Tom Russell “Spanish Burgundy”
from The Long Way Around CD Comp (Hightone 1996) —Larry never danced, but this song, and I'm sure a dozen or so scotch ales coaxed Larry to lead Kathy to the Off Broadway dance floor, wish I would of had a cell phone camera.


Kasey Chambers “Water In the Fuel”
from The Captain (Special Edition) (Asylum/WB 2000) —This cover of a great Fred Eaglesmith song became one of our most requested songs, Fred said that it was his favorite cover of one of his songs.


Fred Eaglesmith “White Rose”
from Drive-In Movie (Bluewater Music Services Corp./ Vertical Records 1998) —Whille we're thinking about Fred we thought we ought to play one of his, Fred was requested often on the show, and was one of our favorite live acts.


Katy Moffatt “On the Borderline (feat. Hugh Moffatt)”
from Live in Holland (Scr Productions 2010) —Katy was a good friend of the show, when Larry was working in commercial country radio in Arkansas, Katy and Steve Young were favorites that he was allowed to play.


Harry Lipson “Gimme a Game of Baseball”
from Fridays & Saturdays (Pandemonium Records 1982) —How can you not play a baseball tune, we spent a lot of time discussing the game when the mics were off and collected a lot of baseball songs.


Chuck Brodsky “Lefty”
from The Baseball Ballads (chuckbrodsky.com records www.waterbug.com 2002) —Chuck, from Philly was the best of the baseball songwriter's, Larry got the pleasure of sitting in the bleachers with Chuck.


Steve Goodman “Dying Cubs Fan's Last Request”
from No Big Surprise: the Steve Goodman Anthology (Red Pajama Records 1994) —Even though he was a Cub fan we both loved the late Steve Goodman, who died of leukemia at 36, four days before the Cubs clinched the National League pennant, and then in typical Cub fashion, blew the next series.


Bruce Jones “I Lied”
from flashpoint sessions (bruce jones 2004) —Bruce Jones and John Logan appeared on the show, and I Lied became a Songwriter Showcase standard.


John Prine “That's The Way The World Goes Round”

David Olney “Flood of '93”
from High, Wide and Lonesome (Philo 1995) —We had to play this song for the line "I'll have my usual, here's to Stan Musial" nuff said !!


The Mollys “Walking Down the Road”
from This is my Round (self 1995) —Larry discovered this Irish Tex Mex polka band after seeing them live and being blown away.


Christine Kane “Scratch My Back”
from This Time Last Year (Big Fat Music 1995) —Larry really liked Christine and promoted her music, but when she wrote this song about hanging out at batting cages he was completely hooked.


John Flynn “Ghost Of A Chance”
from Haunted by the Ghost of a Chance (self 1993) —Larry and Kathy first saw John at the Philly folk Festival and he couldn't wait to bring this cd back to the station.


Townes Van Zandt “Tecumseh Valley”
from Texas Troubadour (Charly Records 1968) —Texas songwriters were a huge part of the show, and there was nobody better than Townes, this song may have been our favorite, with a lot tied for 2nd.


Guy Clark “She's Crazy For Leaving”
from Live in Austin, Tex. (self-released 2013) —When your talking genius you can't leave out Guy, asked when his next album was due, Guy always said "When I've got 12 good ones." He has 12 good ones quite often.


Terry Allen “Gimme a Ride to Heaven Boy”
from Bloodlines (SUGAR HILL www.sugarhillrecords.com 1997) —Larry's favorite album of all time "Lubbock On Everything" this song wasn't on it, but it's become a standard of Texas songwriters.


Butch Hancock & Jimmie Dale Gilmore “One Road More”
from Two Roads (Caroline 1992) —Ducking our heads and with our feet in water, we saw Butch and Jimmy at Ciceros basement bar, blew us away, but they were already favorites of the show.


Robert Earl Keen “Corpus Christi Bay”
from Live at KDHX (Songwriter's Showcase) (KDHX 2002) —Robert brought his whole band to the KDHX studios for a wonderful 45 minute set, that included Larry's favorite Robert Earl Keen song, one of many memorable days during the Larry Weir experience.


Eric Taylor “Prison Movie”
from Live at the Red Shack (Blue Ruby 2011) —Another Texas story teller favorite who came to our kdhx studio with another favorite line of Larry's "as long as Johnny Cash plays Me...' It's great to see the studio full of people, here to say goodbye.


Gretchen Peters “If Heaven”
from Halcyon (Scarlet Letter Records 2009) —Gretchen became a favorite of the show after she teamed up with Tom Russell and played St. Louis live. Next up 2 kdhx legends to close out 25 years that flew by, to quote Jackson Browne "They say in the end it's the wink of an eye."


Bob Reuter “St. Louis”
from Live at KDHX 3/4/08 (KDHX 2008) L —"Scratchy Bob" a long time neighbor of Songwriter Showcase, tragically taken too early, at his creative peak, his uniqueness and originality is what kdhx is all about, an irreplaceable loss.


Emmylou Harris “Till I Gain Control Again”
from Elite Hotel (Reprise 1975) —It's only to fitting to close this old bakery & 25 years of indelible memories and life long friendships the way Larry ended so many shows, take good care of the place Larry !!
