Paul Cavalconte in this week for Corny O'Connell. On this Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, we celebrate his birth and reflect on his legacy. This year will mark 59 years since the march on Washington, and 54 years since King's untimely death.

For Question of the Day let's play music from his lifetime, and beyond, to remember him by.  Suggest a song and I'll play a set after 9 a.m.

Songs played:

1. Nina Simone, "I Wish I Knew How It Would Feel To Be Free"
2. Patti Griffin, "Up To The Mountain"
3. Dion, "Abraham Martin & John" 
4. U2, "MLK"
