Carole, who listens to WMEA in Maine.

"In front of the Big Top Deli in Brunswick, Maine, I waited to hear John Prine finish singing his new song "Some Humans Ain't Human" before I went in to order lunch. I had not known that his wife was Irish or that his family spent summers in Galway... Fascinating bit of backstory on a great singer/songwriter."
