Last night we received the sad news that John Prine passed away yesterday at the age of 73. The cause of death was complications from COVID-19. John Prine's music is ingrained in the soundtrack of our lives, and it will live on here on WFUV. Please share your favorite tracks from him, his collaborations and covers by other artists. We'll spin a set after 9am.

Here's what we played:

John Prine "Hello in There"

Cowboy Junkies with John Prine "If You Were the Woman and I Was the Man"

John Prine with Iris DeMent "In Spite of Ourselves"

John Prine "Ain't Hurtin' Nobody"

 

We'll have more from John Prine throughout the day including his performance from Holiday Cheer for FUV at the Beacon Theatre in 2018 tonight at 8.
