Today is Veterans Day - a day to honor our nation's war veterans. What song would you send out to the men and women who have served or are still serving in the military? We'll pick a set from your suggestions after 9am.

Here's what we played:

"Dress Blues" - Jason Isabell

"Copperhead Road" - Steve Earle

Matt Nakoa grew up on a farm in upstate New York before going to Berklee College of Music in Boston. After establishing himself on the Boston music scene, he chose to move to Brooklyn, the new mecca for singer-songwriters. He returned to another upstate New York farm this past summer as an Emerging Artist at the Falcon Ridge Folk Festival, and I asked him to be part of the November On Your Radar at Rockwood Music Hall.

A restlessly innovative rock musician with a candid, philosophical streak, Conor Oberst is a natural choice to headline our 2014 benefit concert, Holiday Cheer for FUV. This prolific Nebraskan musician has had an astonishing number of guises for a man not yet 35: he's a solo artist with (and without) the Mystic Valley Band, a founder of Saddle Creek Records and the Team Love label, the frontman of Bright Eyes, one-third of the supergroup Monsters of Folk and leader of the harder-rocking Desaparecidos.
