Listener Kathy G from South Berwick, ME requested this song, with this note: "So..been thinking about what a shit year this has been…how I wish I had something to take me away, to make it better, ease the hurt, the missing of my girls and my friends and my world…..it brought me to Joni Mitchell’s The River which I have loved for over 4 1/2 decades. So that’s my contribution. Play me that….Here to 2021….hoping for health and peace and a river to take us away from the roughness of 2020."
