This time around, we’re spotlighting songs about flowers…either literally about blossoms and blooms…or flowers used as a metaphor. Just think about that famous phrase from Robert Burns, “my love is like a red, red rose.” A symbol of love and beauty…a gift of bright colors and sweet fragrance. Or a symbol of springtime and renewal. A contrast to a time of winter and sadness. We’re bringing you a whole bouquet of tunes this week that cover all the different emotions flowers can bring. We’ll hear from Al Hirt, Julie London, Wayne Newton, Bobby Vinton and many more.
