Navigation for New Horizons

William opens a brand spanking new series with a look at Joe Henry's recent album Invisible Hour ... in the context of his 28-year career of course.

Then he makes a neat segue via the goodwill project Songs for Slim in honour of The Replacements' Slim Dunlap. Joe Henry contributed to that and so did John Sebastian. That leads him to getting all nostalgic over Sebastian's sixties group The Lovin' Spoonful and he plays a small handful of their songs.
