This episode was built around an article in Far Out Magazine and their playlist of Joni Mitchell's favorite songs. That article was based on a compilation CD that had been produced for Starbucks and curated by Ms. Mitchell. I've interjected a few of my own favorites, keeping with this theme, as well.
