Memorial Day marks the unofficial start to the summer season. Originally it was a day of remembrance for soldiers killed in the Civil War. That honor has been extended to all who have died in our nation's military service. With that in mind, let's come up with a set of songs for this morning's Question of the Day. We'll spin a set after 9 a.m.

Here's what we played:

Pete Seeger "Where Have All the Flowers Gone?"

Iris DeMent "There's a Wall in Washington"

Johnny Cash "Drive On"

James McMurtry "Memorial Day"
