In this edition of Let's Hear It, The father-and-daughter pair join Cara Lieurance in WMUK's Takeda performance studio as musicians rather than radio hosts, and perform Sahlgren's song "Everything Is Just Fine," Wilkin's song "When The World Was Flat," and a traditional song, "The Cuckoo." 

Darcy Wilkin describes growing up in a musical household, and how she found and sustained her own creative collaborations with her bandmates in The Corn Fed Girls. Sahlgren and Wilkin discuss their admiration of great songwriters, singling out John Prine as a long-time favorite.
