If your music collection were arranged like a library, there would be a section of autobiographical songs. What songs might we find there? Share your favorite songs that songwriters wrote about themselves. We'll spin a set after 9 a.m.

Here's what we played:

Lucinda Williams "Pineola"
Johnny Cash "Man in Black"
The Pretenders "My City Was Gone"
Loudon Wainwright III "Westchester County"
