Loudon Wainwright III

During the day, when I am travelling in my car, I listen to CBC Radio.  On Friday, I was listening to Jian Ghomeshi, and he had as his guest Loudon Wainright III.  I don't know if people remember him, but he had a "hit" song in 1972 called:
"Dead Skunk in the Middle of the Road"

Anyway, apparently he has a new album out, "Older Than My Old Man Now"
He played a song from that album.  "The Here and The Now"

He is an acquired taste, like Burl Ives, "An Itty Bitty Tear Let Me Down"

The ones that sing these little ditties, capture a bit of life, as it really is....
