(aired 2/12/10)

In celebration of Valentine’s Day, which is this Sunday, today’s relevant topic is hearts. “Of all the earthly music, that which reaches farthest into heaven is the beating of a truly loving heart,” said Henry Ward Beecher. And I’d say that the beats of these tunes are also good enough to reach the high heavens — or at least your own divine ears. Thank you to everyone for all the song suggestions. I hope your heartbeat quickens when you hear this week’s show…
