The change of seasons from summer to autumn always makes me feel melancholy. Tonight's show reflected that, and the cautious but hopeful attitude that most of us feel at this time of national tragedy. As Joni Mitchell sang this evening, "There's comfort in melancholy." I hope tonight's music was comforting to you..

Tonight's show reflected the mood of our great nation following the horrific attack on New York City and Washington DC. We also heard new music from Bob Dylan.
