“The Playlist” Salutes September Before it Ends

The season changes to Autumn over the weekend, signalling that September is nearing an end.  This week’s version of “The Playlist” salutes a month that salutes heroes, holidays, the change in the air, and the change in the colors.

The month of September salutes the working man on Labor Day, brings the day nobody will ever forget (9/11), Jewish holidays, a day that salutes heroes, your Nana and Pop-Pop, and the changes from Summer to Fall and Virgo to Libra.

The Playlist will reflect all of this is the vivid colors of Autumn, and maybe surprise you along the way on this 20-song journey.  Embrace the beauty that September brings us:
